Chardonnay is a green-skinned grape variety used to make white wine. Chardonnay originates from the Burgundy wine region of eastern France but today is grown all over the world from England to New Zealand. For a lot of developing wine regions wanting to get into the business, growing Chardonnay is seen as a "rite of passage" and is seen as an easy entry into the international wine market.
Chardonnay is an important component and ingredient of many sparkling wines that are made and come from all around the world, which includes Champagne. Chardonnay had a peak in popularity in the late 1980s that was due to a backlash among those wine drinkers who saw this grape as a leading negative component of the globalization of wine. Nonetheless, it remains one of the most widely planted grape varieties, with over 400,000 acres worldwide and is planted in more wine regions than any other grape – including Cabernet Sauvignon.
Due to the wide range of styles, Chardonnay has the potential to be paired with a diverse spectrum of food types. It is most commonly paired with roast chicken and other white meats such as turkey. The regional influences of Chardonnay can help it pair with different food styles.
