Cheers All! It's International Chardonnay Day

Raise your glass and join us in a toast to one of the world's most beloved and versatile white wines – Chardonnay!


Every year, on the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend, wine enthusiasts and aficionados come together to celebrate International Chardonnay Day. This day is a perfect opportunity to appreciate the beauty and diversity of this iconic grape variety.

How It All Began

Chardonnay, known as the "icon of white grapes," has a long and storied history that dates back centuries. Originating in the Burgundy region of France, Chardonnay has since spread to almost every winemaking region around the globe. Its adaptability to different climates and winemaking techniques has made it a favourite among winemakers and consumers.

What Does Chardonnay Taste Like

Chardonnay is renowned for its versatility, offering a wide range of flavours and styles to suit every palate. From crisp and unoaked Chardonnays with notes of green apple, pear, and citrus, to rich and buttery oaked Chardonnays with hints of vanilla and toast, there is a Chardonnay out there for everyone. Whether you prefer a Chablis from France, a Californian classic, or an Ontario cool-climate Chardonnay with racing acidity and judicious oak, the options are endless.

On International Chardonnay Day, wine lovers worldwide come together to raise a glass in celebration of this beloved grape varietal. So, whether you're hosting a wine tasting with friends, visiting a local winery, or simply enjoying a glass of Chardonnay at home as I am, take this opportunity to appreciate the beauty and complexity of this iconic wine.

Pour yourself a glass, enjoy the moment, and toast to the timeless elegance of Chardonnay.
