Sunday, December 4th will be the second annual #CabFrancDay. All day we will be tweeting facts about Cabernet Franc. We will culminate the day with a twitter chat beginning at 8pm EST and a virtual tasting at 9pm EST. My #WinePW friends will be joining in the celebration and extending the fun throughout the week into our December chat on Saturday December 10th at 11am EST.
As the creator of #CabFrancDay, I will be hosting the December #WinePW. I am being purposely vague about what the mission, if they choose to accept it, will be. All I ask is that they pick up a bottle of Cabernet Franc and pair it with whatever their heart desires! Cabernet Franc is such a versatile variety, it can pair with almost anything, so I am excited to see what creative dishes my friends will come up with. These posts will be shared on Cab Franc Day’s website and if someone creates a pairing they absolutely adore, I am hoping they will let me add it to our recipe page!
The #WinePW crew will be having a live #winePW Twitter Chat on December 10, 11 a.m. EST. If you have blog and would like to participate just follow the steps below. If you don’t have a blog, you can still join in the chat!
