Word of the Week: Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a dry white table wine typically made from a single white grape variety. This grape is originally from the Burgundy region in France, but is now grown all over the world.    

The word Chardonnay is derived from the Latin word “Cardonnacum,” which means “where the thistle grows.” The Thistle is a native plant in France and grew in the region of Burgundy back when the Chardonnay grape was originally planted. 

Chardonnay pairs well with the Italian cheese Pantaleo, which is an Italian goat’s milk cheese from Sardegna or with Brie, the French soft cow’s-milk cheese. Santé!
