While Chardonnay is the most planted white grape variety in the world, Pinot Noir is the red wine that has by far more devotees. Versatility and finesse is probably the best way to describe these two varieties. Pinot Noir is a very delicate grape, temperamental and difficult to cultivate; the opposite to Chardonnay, which is a sturdy variety that adapts very easily to the place where it grows. Two varieties that prefer cool climates, where they usually grow close to each other. Join us for an extensive tasting of 10 Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from some of the best wine regions of the world!
