The 3rd annual Chardonnay Symposium is coming up this weekend and we are excited to be a part of it again this year! It is a great event that allows you to explore Chardonnay from the vine to the glass. The weekend is full of great events and we hope you can make it out to join us and share the love for one of the most beloved white grapes in the world!
Kick off the weekend with a "bring your own Chardonnay" BBQ at Sierra Madre Vineyard on Friday followed by an educational panel on Saturday morning. Wine Enthusiast's Steve Heimoff will moderate the panel and our very own Dieter Cronje will be sitting on the panel along with 7 other great winemakers from the area. Check out this video clip from last year's panel.
The Grand Tasting will begin at noon on Saturday at Byron Winery's beautiful estate in Santa Maria. You won't want to miss out on a chance to hang out and enjoy the scenery and taste lots of wonderful Chardonnay and fabulous food from local vendors!
