Chardonnay Day 2022, what's on?

Chardonnay Day is back on Thursday 26 May. California is at the origin of this event created more than 10 years ago to promote this emblematic grape variety: Chardonnay. Since then, Bourgogne has become the leader of this unique day.


The aim is to make a lasting impression and to remind people that, before it conquered the whole world, Chardonnay made its mark in Bourgogne. And here, we do not produce "only Chardonnay", but Chablis, Pouilly-Fuissé, Montagny or Meursault...
In addition to the animation of the social networks of the wines of Bourgogne to honour this grape variety, several events are organized:

- In the heart of the village of Chardonnay, on the occasion of #ChardonnayDay, 13 producer estates of the Mâcon-Chardonnay appellation and their partners, invite you to a return to the roots of the most famous white wine on the planet on Thursday 26 May 2022 (Ascension Thursday).
From 10am to 10pm, come and celebrate this emblematic grape variety in the town where it was born. On the programme: interactive tastings, discovery of the vineyard, meetings with the winegrowers and musical entertainment! Come and enjoy a convivial moment of sharing around this emblematic grape variety of the Bourgogne vineyard.
