In addition to tasting world class Chardonnays, there will be Sparkling wine and coffees on arrival and a decadent harvest table for lunch. To end off the day there will be time for guests to  chat with fellow Chardonnay lovers, producers and the panel while enjoying a variety of delicious drinks and gourmet snacks.
