Today is National Chardonnay Day!!! by Philip S. Kampe

                        Look what arrived at my front door on National Chardonnay Day!

I have always been a big fan of Wente Vineyards, the oldest American winery, since 1863. That is when C.H. Wente purchased 47 acres acres in California's Livermore Valley.

Today, the 4th and 5th generation family members run the operation. 80% of their wines are from the Wente Clone.

The three Chardonnays that arrive, sell for $15-$24 on the shelves.

Enough said...time to Drink Up on this Special Day!!
