Chardonnay, California's most widely planted grape, is a green-skinned varietal used to produce white wines all over the globe.

From un-oaked and fruit-forward variations with hints of minerality to rich and toasty with vanilla and butter, the spectrum of flavors and aromas is very diverse.

Try Chardonnay with white fish, shellfish and chicken - especially with creamy, buttery sauces.
