I can't seem to find anyone who sells a Cab Franc wine kit. Does anyone know if anyojne does and if so, have you done one yet and how did it come out?

WineExpert makes Cab Franc kits. We've made 2 or 3 of them and we loved them. In fact I think we are picking up another one this weekend. =)

I was about to suggest the same, but then I went to their site to confirm and didn't find one. Do you know which of their lines has the Cab franc?

I know they had a Cab Franc/Merlot in their Estate Series that was outstanding, but that kit was discontinued about a year ago.

WE no longer makes it - because I wanted a few badly. I snoozed and i lost when they were available. I figured they would be there when I got to it. They weren't.
