It’s a classic, cool-climate Chardonnay, pairs exceptionally well with a wide variety of foods and brings out the best in food, friends and Fridays!. So raise a glass and join us for a celebration of wine, Chardonnay, Oregon wines and Fridays! #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing #OregonWineMonth #IdahoWineMonth
