#DrinkChenin

Drink Chenin Day is taking place on Saturday 17th June and this year we are going to run a Taste & Tweet celebrating this versitile grape variety. If you would like to get involved, please email your full name, delivery address, Twitter handle and date of birth to info at winesofsa dot com. We will send the first 25 entrants a bottle of Chenin Blanc to taste with us on 17th June. All we ask is that you are over 18, live in the UK and please use #DrinkChenin when posting. If you are not on Twitter, we will be posting on Instagram and Facebook too. 

Of course, as it's a Saturday, why not invite some pals around for a Braai (BBQ) and share the fun with good friends and great food.

In addition, we will be showcasing Chenin Blanc on our stand at The Wine Gang tasting - click here for more information and to buy tickets.

It's every wine producing country's marketing dream: to have your own unique grape variety. These days the wine world is very competitive, and it's all very well making great Chardonnay, or Cabernet Sauvignon, or Merlot, or Sauvignon Blanc. Lots of countries make good examples of these wines, and you are just one of a crowd. What everyone wants is their own unique offering, and South Africa has just such a grape variety, and quite a bit of it. There is a problem, though. How do I put it kindly? This grape variety is not, to use a nice British phrase, everyone's cup of tea. It is Pinotage, until recently the marmite of red grape varieties.

I fell in love with South Africa and the wines a few years ago. The recent MasterChef UK final took me right back to a holiday I had there. They went to the same Game Reserve that we stayed at and we also went to Reuben Riffel's restaurant in Franschhoek the night before my friends wedding - it was great to see Reuben as a guest judge too! Watching that episode seemed like the perfect excuse to open this beautiful bottle of Semillon from Boekenhoutskloof. What a delicious wine!
