Cabernet Crown Domains
…a future that feels like the past…
Time has erased the traces of the old "country fort" that reigned over this land, and the memories accumulate along the rows of the vineyards, where the farming soul of generations is born again, and brings with it nostalgia for the faces of our ancestors, who, since far-off times have nurtured and cultivated Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon in this grandeur filled with deep silences. Cabernet Franc, like Cabernet Sauvignon, comes from the southwest of France, and more precisely, from the Gironde Region, an area that is intensely cultivated with grapes, situated between the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, in the province of Bordeaux. They were imported into Italy by Count Manfred di Sambuy in 1820, and in the same year, they reached Friuli. Notwithstanding the fact that Cabernet Franc was little known and not very productive, it was cultivated by the Bressan family with care and tenacity for its quality and the refined nature of its wine: full-bodied, intense, aristocratic... all together a superior personality that accompanies the fragrant notes of an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon well.
