Embark on a wine-tasting adventure like no other with the Chenin Safari!

Join us for an unforgettable journey through the picturesque landscapes of wine country as you explore as many tasting rooms as you can in just six weeks. Savour the unique flavours and aromas of Chenin Blanc as you traverse through vineyards and cellars; tagging the producers and #DrinkChenin along the way, you'll earn the ultimate reward: an exclusive Chenin Safari shirt to commemorate your epic wine-tasting escapade.

For the challenge, participants have six weeks to visit six Chenin Safari stops or more. The more you visit, the better your chances to win! 

Please upload fun, creative photos of your visit to each tasting room to our tracker page to log your safari experiences. It is all about enjoying the visits.


We would also love you to engage on social media by uploading a photo of your visit, tagging @the_winery_name,  and adding the hashtags #DrinkChenin and #CheninSafari.  

Exploring the cycling and hiking trails are optional.  All you have to do to earn your shirt, is visit the tasting rooms and share your photos.

Make it even more fun by bringing friends together to explore and #DrinkChenin! The bigger your team, the more each stop counts towards winning the ultimate team prize.
