The queen of white grape varieties

Chardonnay is probably the best known white grape variety in the world. This versatile and adaptable variety original from southern Burgundy became increasingly popular from the 1980s onwards and today can be found in many wine regions around the world.

Chardonnay is mainly found in two predominant styles: voluptuous gastronomic whites aged in oak, and delicate sparkling wines, with some interesting sweet wines that wine-curious will appreciate.
