Chardonnays from France & California
Back to Trapp Family Lodge
Join Trapp Family Lodge in the Wine Cellar for a Chardonnays from France & California wine tasting event on Saturday, March 14, 2020.
Quite a few attendees of these tastings the past few years report that they have given up on Chardonnays. Most of these patrons are primarily familiar with California Chards. “Too much butter, too much oak” is the general lament. My personal tastes have moved away from that style over the past dozen years. Though on occasion I still find myself craving a heavier California version.
Once upon a time Chardonnay was synonymous with white wine in the United States. If we ordered a house white we expected a chardonnay. But no longer. We now enjoy a wide range of white varietals.
But let’s give Chardonnay its due. It can make wonderful wines and those of you unfamiliar with French versions are in for an eye opener.
Price is $20. Please call or see the front desk to place reservations at (802) 253-5742. Doors open at 4 p.m. They suggest you arrive no later than 5 p.m. to avoid feeling rushed. People come and go during the tasting which is an informal walk around format. The event ends at 6 p.m.
