The Chenin Association will be showcasing the iconic white varietal, Chenin Blanc, at the Grand Café & Beach on 11 April. You can look forward to the finest offerings from over 30 producers, as well as delicious canapes, all enjoyed on this exquisite beach-setting next to the V&A Waterfront.

The Grand has become well loved for their trendy beach parties, with bars, tables and lounge sets all settled in the sand, inviting you to kick off your shoes, watch the ships, catamarans and yachts sailing by on their way to the harbour, and make-believe you’re somewhere on a tropical island.

It sounds like a pretty perfect venue to try some of stunning Chenin Blanc, a white wine varietal that flourishes in our climate. Aside from the setting and the Chenin, you’ll also be charmed and enchanted by mentalist and magician Larry Soffer, as well as jazz music from the Blake Hellaby band.

Share your experience with #DrinkChenin and you can also win a bottle of wine from every producer – that’s 30 bottles of wine!

Venue: Grand Africa Café & Beach

Tickets: R450 pp which includes a glass, tastings of all of the wines on offer, canapés, live jazz and the magician’s acts. Available from

I am a lifestyle blogger from Cape Town trying to find the best ways to spend my time, take care of my body and express myself. I am slightly obsessed with fragrances, sneakers, Jamie Oliver and Masterchef Australia. Oh, and I probably drink way too much wine.
