Cabernet Franc is gaining recognition for its ability to produce expressive, high-quality varietal wines. In the Okanagan Valley, the grape seems to thrive in the warm climate, producing wines with bright red fruit flavors, ripe tannins, and intense aromas. In cool years, Cabernet Franc retains its structure and flavor without becoming overly herbaceous or green. This versatility makes it well-suited to the variable climate of British Columbia. The South Okanagan and Similkameen regions, in particular, are known for their exceptional Cabernet Franc wines. As the grape continues to gain recognition for its potential, the Okanagan Valley is establishing itself as a top producer of this varietal.
