European Chardonnay grapes are the most popular green-skinned grape in making white wine. Produced in almost every wine region in the world. Chardonnay is a medium producing grape with average sized clusters and berries. It ripens earlier than most of the red varieties which helps it be less susceptible to late rains and rot. Noted for a rich, buttery flavor with notes of fruit flavors such as Peach, Pear, Apple, and some tropical fruit. Many Chardonnays are aged in oak barrels which impart a layer of complexity to the finished wine. The wine produced should be consumed within 3 to 4 years after being made as it is not considered to be a good wine for aging longer than this.
Cane or spur pruned.
Wine grapes have small berry like fruit with seeds. The flavor and color of wine is derived primarily from the skins. The best locations for planting grape vines are on slopes with good drainage and poor fertility.
Select a variety based on your climate and the type of wine desired. Find out if there are any vineyards in your area and what variety they grow — If they are having success with a specific variety, you probably will as well!
Keep in mind each vine yields an average of one gallon of wine, but plant extra to make up for fruit loss from birds and other causes.
