There are international varieties (Chardonnay, Merlot, etc..) But also excellent varieties that are better adapted to certain regions of the world. An opportunity to discover new flavors. Here the Cabernet Severnyi variety from CARONE Wines Vineyards: Lanoraie, Québec (40 minutes north-east from Montréal beside the St. Laurent river).
CARONE is the first and only producer of the Cabernet Severnyi grape in Quebec. Originally from Eastern Europe, Cabernet Severnyi is a grape variety that can withstand cold climates and produces an intensely flavoured medium bodied red wine. Our Cabernet Severnyi was selected as the official red wine for the royal visit of Prince William and Catherine in Montreal on July 2, 2011.
