When enjoying Chardonnay, consider pairing it with snacks, salads, and appetizers that bring out its best qualities. For example, roasted sweet potatoes or a grilled pumpkin salad can be delightful options. When it comes to main dishes, Chardonnay pairs well with roasted chicken, grilled pork, a variety of seafood options, and ham. For our medium-bodied oaked Chardonnay, they can beautifully accompany dishes like risotto, pasta, meatballs, and creamy soups.
