Chardonnay Classic

May 20 - May 22, 2021

In its inaugural year, The Chardonnay Classic stands to be the preeminent Chardonnay focused wine event of the year. Bringing together the world’s finest vintners in an exclusive invite-only participation. We will showcase the immense variety and expression of a single varietal. From still to sparkling, crisp to oaky, and everything in between; we explore the “Winemaker’s Grape” and journey through each producer’s wine.

The Chardonnay Classic gathers together winemakers, industry professionals, and enthusiasts alike to more fully learn and appreciate the vast intricacies and expressions of a simple and humble grape. With a focus on educational sessions, grand tastings, and expertly crafted experiential dinners; we create an environment that fosters both business relationships and deep friendships that promotes lasting community amongst all involved in creating and enjoying every bottle of wine.

Set in the beautiful Napa Valley at sister properties Meritage Resort & Spa and Vista Collina Resort, guests will indulge in the art of crafted luxury - from exquisite meals to rare vintages; the Chardonnay Classic is an experience you will never forget!
