Chenin Blanc has made huge strides in quality and popularity over the last few years, with a passionate group of producers aiming for the stars! The first “Celebrate Chenin” Festival, presented by Perdeberg Wines will share this passion with wine lovers, showing off styles from serious barrel-fermented whites, easy-drinking fruity summer wine right up to Methóde Cap Classique bubblies and incredible dessert wines. The Chenin Blanc Association will share some of SA’s top Chenins in two tutored tasting sessions at 11h30 and 14h00 respectively. Tickets for these tastings must be bought upfront on Webtickets at R100 pp as only 20 persons can be accommodated per session.
