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

From unoaked and fruit-forward 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.
