The Chardonnay challenge at Armadale Cellars was a fabulous evening of learning about the different regions in the world that produce Chardonnay. The wines tasted were beautiful and over different price points. Highly recommend this event!

We very much enjoyed the Chardonnay challenge run by Phil at Armadale Cellars. Phil is very knowledgeable and struck a good balance of providing some information together with entertaining anecdotes. The wines we tasted were an excellent mix, introducing us to a wide array of Chardonnays. All together wonderful evening.
