Chardonnay is a traditional white wine grape that is one of our favorites and one that continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. It is believed that this specimenís earliest roots were firmly planted in the Burgundy wine region of eastern France, but Chardonnay grapes are now grown all over the globe.
The Chardonnay Grape blooms early in the season, with the fruit ripening relatively early as well-- sometimes before autumn in certain regions. The best Chardonnays grow in cooler climates, however this variety adapts well to warmer regions too.
One of the better methods of growing grapes is to train the vines to climb a trellis or trail over an arbor. Try not to crowd your vines, as these beauties do spread a bit and they tend to fair better with a little room for air circulation.
Chardonnay is happiest in limestone, clay or chalky soils, which are more prevalent throughout its traditional homeland, but it will perform well in almost any vineyard soil.
Plant in areas where this vine will receive plenty of sunshine everyday to ensure optimal flavor and bouquet.
