Renegade Wine dinner series at Rebelle NYC presented by sommelier Patrick Cappiello. Focus was on Cab Franc: 15 wines paired with 5 courses. Posting a few favorites.

This was just super funky - a sparkling Cab Franc. Really unusual on the nose which fortunately didn't translate on the palate. There was tart fruit - almost cranberry like - and the slightest hint of sweetness. This was just a really fun and unusual wine.

Sparkling cab franc! Tried this at Oberlin In Providence and it was very interesting and delicious. Definitely would buy a bottle.

Don’t quite get the poor reviews for this. Uncomplicated and fruit forward. Great for a BBQ.

Contrary to most reviews I liked this - a lot. This wine is different. Very soft mouth feel with the bubbles. Has tart fruit but a little barnyard funk on it. Had with a cheese and charcuterie board which was perfect with the slight sweetness of the wine. If you're looking to try something a little off the beaten path - this is it.

Perf 4th day-drinking soft bubbs. Refreshing, but a little grippy still to keep ya in check
