Chardonnay is the most popular white wine grape in the world. It is most at home in the Burgundy region of France. Though it grows in all climates, the best versions of the grape typically come from climates cooler than the Sierra Foothills. That being said, it is important for some wineries to produce Chardonnay in order to make all of their customers happy. In the Sierra Foothills, some wineries do this by sourcing grapes from outside of the region. However, some wineries are adventurous and undeterred by the challenge of making Chardonnay from local grapes. It is these latter attempts that we rate below.
