Grape Varietal Blog- Chenin Blanc Chenin Blanc is one of those special grape varieties that every wine connoisseur should become familiar with. It can be found almost anywhere in the world.

Chenin Blanc looks like any other grape that we would see on a vine. It grows in a tight but large bundle of grapes. It usually grows in a large cone shaped structure.

The oil makes the grape very strong against abuse. This is why Chenin Blanc can be found in many locations around the world.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
