CHARDONNAY VS. VERDEJO

If we were to make a list of the most important white varieties grown in Spain, the Chardonnay and Verdejo grapes would surely have a place of honour. (The list would be almost complete if we added the varieties Albariño, Xarel.lo, Godello, Macabeu and White Grenache.)

A native of Burgundy, Chardonnay is not only the world's best known white grape, but arguably the best known grape of all, whether they be white or red.
