Did you know? Cabernet Franc is also called Cabernet Breton, or simply “le Breton”! This is because this typical Loire wine was very often exported to Brittany, or to England through the port of Nantes which at the time was in… Brittany!

Prepared with pork chitterlings (i.e. the large intestine) threaded on top of each other to give it its characteristic cut, made of concentric circles.
