King of Chardonnays tasting…

Taste top Chardonnays on Thursday 5 October at Regional Wines, Wellington

What’s your favourite Chardonnay?

Big, buttery and full bodied? Or crisp, citrusy and site expressive?

Whichever way you like your Chardonnay, our King of Chardonnays tasting on Thursday 5 October is highly likely to reward you – in more ways than one.

Join us and Chardonnay specialist Tony Bish at Regional Wines in Wellington for this special tasting at which we will open 9 wines.

This special blind tasting will highlight the incredible versatility of Chardonnay when grown in different countries, different regions and also when it’s made in a variety of styles. We will taste 6 New Zealand Chardonnays and 3 from Burgundy; including one from each sub-region to highlight the classic traditional European styles from Chardonnay’s spiritual homeland.

This promises to be an outstanding tasting for Chardonnay lovers and all drinkers of high quality white wine.
