#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.

Don't you just love coincidences? Well, how's this for one. During my last trip to South Africa in February, I took a break from vintage to head over to the Swartland, for a tasting of old wines from Piedmont – mostly Barolos and Barbarescos from the 1960s. This was on Friday night, and it was amazing. I stayed over with my friends Ryan Mostert and Samantha Suddons, who make wine under the Silwervis, Smiley and Terracura labels. The next day they took me for a drive to see some of the vineyards that they work with. We headed out along the backroads of the Swartland, travelling from one farm to another, on a gorgeously bright, sunny Saturday morning, riding in Samantha's Range Rover. Now a Range Rover is a four-wheel drive car for fancy people, and this one was a bit pimped up with low profile tyres on after-market alloy wheels. You can guess what happened next.

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!
