MAKE MY CHARDONNAY DAY
‘Make My Chardonnay Day’ @ The ED Cellars
Saturday 25 May 2 – 5pm In Store
Celebrate International Chardonnay Day
with a tasting of this versatile and fun variety.
Over the last 25 years Chardonnay, has had a roller coaster of a ride in the popularity stakes from Bridget Jones (love these cringe worthy movies!),
being blamed for turning British people off Chardonnay (due to her struggles with men, cigarettes and the bathroom scales),
Alanis Morissette who sang about a “black fly in your Chardonnay (very unfortunate…) to the long running TV series ‘Dynasty’ who liked their Chardonnay like their shoulder pads- BIG!
But the tables have turned and once again Chardonnay has been reigned QUEEN in all her complexity, nuances & chameleon like qualities.
NB some wines on tasting are extremely limited and may not be available for the duration of the event.
