The perfect white to bring to a party. Shows your good taste, and little did they know how much you paid for it.
It can be a draining, fruitless exercise trying to find a tasty, reasonably priced Chardonnay that's pleasant and crisp, and that works as well with food as it does on its own. But Blue Quail is about as go-to as a Chardonnay can get – honest, clean and refreshing. The grapes are grown in the Potter Valley in Mendocino County (north of Sonoma), which experiences hot days that ripen the grapes and cold nights that preserve the fruit's mouthwatering acidity. And the wine's fermented cool in stainless-steel tanks, so there's no buttered-popcorn or Louisville Slugger flavor here – just pure, refreshing Chardonnay flavor with no pretense. Your hunt is over.
