Organically Grown Chardonnays Featured at Unified Wine Grape Symposium Panel

Those attending the Chardonnay panel at Unified Wine Grape Symposium blind tasted six Chardonnays
ranging from UK bubbles to Chablis to natural wine to Kendall Jackson's $16 Chardonnay at a panel session
From left to right, Virginia Philip (The Breakers), Jason Lett (Eyrie), Shaunt Oungoulian (Les Lunes), Greg Brewer (Diatom), Gary Fisch (Gary's Wine, NJ), and Ray Isle (Food and Wine).
Moderator Ray Isle, editor of Food and Wine magazine, injected humor and variety into a 90 minute exploration of the many faces of Chardonnay.

The audience first blind tasted the wines before the session began.

The big reveal brought many surprises - wines that were not among the usual suspects.

 Two of the six wines tasted were from organic vines - Jason Lett's Eyrie Vineyards Estate Chardonnay and Les Lunes' Barra Vineyard Chardonnay (140 cases, no added sulfites), a natural wine.
