Chardonnay grapes originated in the Burgundy wine region of France and can now be found in several countries ranging from Australia and the United States. The reason for this popularity is that chardonnay is a very hearty grape that is easy to take care of and can grow in both cool and medium climates. The grape grows especially well in areas that have chalky, clay, or limestone soils, but it can grow in other types of soil as well, which is why chardonnay wines have such a wide variety of flavors and aromas that range from lean and crisp with high acidity to honey and tropical fruit flavors.
