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:


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.


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.


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.


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.
