Celebrating Cabernet Day
Get your bottle of wine ready. Tomorrow September 2 is #Cabernet Day on a variety of social media websites. Wine Business reports that more than 50 wineries, 600 wine drinkers and 100 restaurants around the world will gather for what is hoped to be the largest online wine tasting held to date. The event is open to anyone using the #Cabernet hashtag in search engines and social network sites. The event runs for a full 24 hours, starting in Australia and moving across the world as it becomes drinking time in various nations. Wineries have been advertising the event to consumers and some have special deals for the event. Wine Library and Cork'd are putting on a special tasting at the Roger Smith Hotel in Manhattan. Full details are available on the Cabernet Day Eventbrite site. The site says that it's not just Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc and Cab-dominated blends are welcome for this global celebration. We recommend Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvigonon, The Luxist Awards winner for best domestic red wine.
