Ark of Taste Proposal: Chenin Blanc, Clarksburg AVA  It is widely known that 3 regions produce the finest Chenin Blanc: 1) the Loire Valley in Northern France, 2) South Africa, and 3) Clarksburg, California. This often maligned grape is now being ripped out, and replaced with our new favorite varietal, Chardonnay. Darrell Corti acknowledges the unique character of Chenin Blanc from Clarksburg.
