The French #Winophiles Explore the Many Mysteries of Chablis in April

IMG_1424In April, I’m leading an event for wine writers exploring the many secrets of Chablis. When I started studying wine and learned that Chablis is Chardonnay, it was an epiphany for me.  And I know I am not alone – millions of people have no idea that Chablis is … Chardonnay! So let’s explore the many mysteries of this delicious crisp, mineral-driven, stone-fruit centered white wine from Northern Burgundy!

If you would like to participate by writing a blog post about Chablis, I hope you’ll join us! All posts need to be published by 8 a.m. CST on Saturday morning, April 20, and at 10 am.. CST, we’ll head to Twitter for an hour-long Chablis Chat, using #Winophiles.

  • Send an email to tell me you’re in. Please put #Winophiles Chablis in the subject line and include your blog url and Twitter handle. If you know your blog post title, include that, but you can also send that a bit closer to the event. We’d like to get a sense of who’s participating and give some shout-outs and links as we go.
