Occasionally, I’ll post a wine-related news story here that I think even the most casual reader might find interesting.

The Wines & Vines story posted Friday is all about Oregon’s emerging Chardonnay wines.

It particularly caught my eye because when I visited the Willamette Valley last summer I remember asking Don Lange what’s new, what’s next for the region. Don replied without hesitation that Chardonnay was the next big thing.

The story is interesting. If you’re a Chard fan, check it out.
