It finally arrived! #DrinkChenin Day!
It is a worldwide celebration of chenin blanc wine – fellow wine lover Nadia Barnard gave a fabulous introduction to it on her blog “Oh, my Feast” – this will give you a detailed background, better than I ever could! 🙂 Link to “Oh my, Chenin Blanc” on “Oh, my Feast”
