Wine & Cheese Tasting – Chardonnays from France & California
Back to Trapp Family Lodge
Join Trapp Family Lodge for a Chardonnays from France & California wine tasting event on Saturday, August 8, 4 – 6 p.m.
Quite a few attendees of these tastings the past few years report that they have given up on Chardonnays. Most of them 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.

Please arrive no later than 5 p.m. to avoid losing your spot. People come and go during the tasting which is a socially-distanced format.
In the event of rain, we will move this event to the Main Dining Room. We’re looking forward to seeing & tasting wine with you again!
