Learn about Chardonnay Wine

The Chardonnay grape variety is a classic white wine grape grown all around the world. It is at the top, as probably the world's favorite white grape variety. Where It Grows The Chardonnay grape grows everywhere. The exact origin of Chardonnay is hard to trace, but its reputation was established in the Burgundy region of France. Winemakers love Chardonnay because the vines are easy to grow, and have a high yield.

Chardonnay is one of the few grapes in the world that does not require blending. However, it is also blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier to produce Champagne. Wine Characteristics It is widely known for producing excellent full-bodied wines.

The cooler zoned climate Chardonnay grapes produce an abundance of fruit flavors. You can pick up apple, pineapple, or the hint of peach. The warmer climate Chardonnays may have less of the fruits but develop wonderful honey, vanilla, and roasted flavors that really fill the mouth.
