Join us to embark on a captivating exploration of Chenin Blanc; renowned for its versatility from sparkling to sweet wines. Originating in France’s Loire Valley, South Africa now leads as the global producer, contributing 58% of the world’s acreage. Celebrating their 365th vintage, we focus on South Africa’s Chenin Blanc excellence.

Experience diverse flights, featuring Chenin as the dominant grape in a blend and uncovering unique terroir influences from schist, granite, and iron-rich soils. While Stellenbosch has traditionally held prestige, the last 15 years have seen the Swartland emerge with exciting Chenin examples, thanks to the rediscovery of old vine sites.

Indulge in wines from esteemed producers like Eben Sadie, Mullineux, and Alheit, showcasing the pinnacle of Chenin craftsmanship. Renowned critics, including Tim Akin and Wine Advocate, have awarded these wines impressive ratings, ranging from 90-98 and 92-96, respectively. Join us for a tasting journey that captures the essence of South Africa’s Chenin Blanc prowess!
