In 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.
HOW TO JOIN IN
- 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.

Thanks for hosting this month. I am excited to learn more from the French Winophiles.
Thanks, Cam! I adore Chablis and am excited to write about it!
We all need more Chablis in our lives, right?!? Thanks Liz
We do! In fact, a friend of mine nicknamed me “Lil Chabs” because I’m always pouring Chabs for people!!
Thanks for hosting! I know Sue was surprised that Chablis was simply Chardonnay from a region in France!
