Considered the queen of white grapes, Chardonnay is the main French white variety grown mainly in the areas of Burgundy, Chablis and Champagne. In Argentina, within the foothills of the Andes Mountains is where our Chardonnay hales from. This area produces deep delicate white wines of remarkable persistence and balance.
