When buying a good
Sauvignon wine we feel inevitably tempted to choose
Bordeaux, the weight of tradition, its fame, or rather the
experience and extension are forceful reasons. But make no
mistake, they are good and they are a lot, but these French are
not the only Cabernet Sauvignon that can impress us. Let’s see
what else can be found around.
For instance, now Bulgaria has more than eighteen
thousand acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, which means nearly
as many as the aforementioned Bordeaux, the French region best
known for this grape. It is not the only country in Eastern
Europe that enjoys the benefits of these small, very dark and
thick skin grapes. We can also keep track of Cabernet Sauvignon
(as if looking for Carmen Sandiego) in Moldova, Romania,
Slovenia, Hungary and Greece and of course also in Russia,
Georgia, Lebanon, Israel, Cyprus or Turkey.
