Welcome to our latest installment of #WinephabetStreet brought to you by Dracaena Wines and Kitchen 330. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I work our way through the wine world one letter each month. We discuss the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.
C is for Chenin Blanc
Today we head back to Winephabet Street. Today’s letter is C and it stands for Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc originated in the Loire Valley of France. Today, it is extremely common in South Africa, which has about 1/5th of the plantings, and the United States. Known to be a rather versatile grape, with the ability to produce both still and sparkling wines as well as dry, semi sweet and sweet wines. While you are sipping and listening, please rate, review and subscribe to Exploring the Wine Glass to help others find us. So sit back unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and enjoy learning about the up and coming grape variety, Chenin Blanc.
