BOOK CLUB

Book-Club.jpg

The story of Chardonnay reads like a great book. The introduction, where this most regal of white varieties was chosen by ancient Kings to be planted in vineyards that had already, in the Middle Ages, been selected as the best sites for planting grapes. Then the climax, where Chardonnay’s success is replicated world-wide, producing the world’s most expensive white wines in the greatest diversity of sites. And now, Book Club, where the mysteries are unraveled and the story concludes with a glass of delicious, vibrant, generously flavored Chardonnay.
