About the event

Join us in our Monthly Empouria Elite Tasting sessions, as this month we explore Chenin Blanc! 

Chenin Blanc is a white grape varietal from the Loire Valley in France, which produces a wide range of flavors. Part of the reason for this has a lot to do with the winemaking style. From sparkling, to oaked and unoaked dry white wines, and even sweet wines you’ll find a range of flavors. However, all the wines made from Chenin will have similarities. It’s hard not to love Chenin Blanc’s diversity; sparkling sensations, crisp dry whites, oaked full-bodied delights, and sweet treasures with aging potential.

Lead by Empouria Proprietor and Level 1 WSET Sommelier Hayley Hardcastle, we'll explore 4 Distinct Chenin-growing regions:

FRANCE

Domaine Pichot Vouvray - A beautiful Chenin Blanc, this offers ripe peach, melon and honeyed tones. Soft and round, this lightly sweet wine is appeals to the novice and seasoned wine veterans.

SOUTH AFRICA

Beaumont Family Wines - A bright and zesty in the glass with floral citrus tones, underripe white peach and lime candy. Medium-bodied, a persistent stream of acidity drives the structure across the mid-palate with energetic citrus tones before concluding with a crisp, mineral finish.

CALIFORNIA

Aperture Cellars - A vibrant and bright wine, coming from old vines planted in the 1940’s. It is a product of its rich clay loam soils and colder, brisk nights that are made possible by the Delta Breeze coming in off the San Francisco Bay.

TEXAS

Lewis Family Vineyards - Grown in the Phillips Family Vineyards in the Texas High Plains, this Chenin is bone-dry, medium-acidity with flavors of pear, apple, ginger, honey, tangerine and refreshing minerality.

Receive tastings of all 4 expressions and then a pour of whichever you prefer! Empouria Elite members are welcome to keep their souvenir glass.
