Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s the reason to come to Napa Valley. Or is it?
No one in the Historic Tasting Room at Freemark Abbey would really argue this point. The winery’s hospitality team is as well-versed as any in Napa Valley on the many merits of classic Napa Cabernet. With additional tools at their disposal—namely the winery’s legendary Chardonnay, and also Merlot, Viognier, Malbec, and a handful of other varietal wines—they certainly can (and do) augment the Cabernet-centric offerings for visitors to the St. Helena winery.
It’s all for the sake of comparison—not an easy thing for some Napa Valley producers to accomplish when their offerings are, by choice or necessity, quite limited. The wide range of wines produced by Freemark Abbey allows for comprehensive tasting experiences, simply making it a great place to visit.
