“Cabernet Sauvignon is a majestic red wine,” said Karen MacNeil, author of The Wine Bible. “It deserves to be the center of an extraordinary event--and that is what CabFest at the Lincoln Theater in the Napa Valley will be!”

“As the second CabFest Napa Valley has taken shape, we were thrilled by the participation of so many wineries, each generously participating by pouring their finest wines in support of our beneficiary non-profit, the Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater,” said CabFest Napa Valley Producer, Michael Madden who went on to state that many of the wineries will be featured in the new hardcover book The Cabernets of CabFest which will be released at the event.
