I found this blog online written by an American blogger, Marissa A Ross and it really says it all …After running a savage smear campaign against California Chardonnay for most of my early twenties, I want to publicly say I am sorry. I am ashamed that I was a registered member of the ABC party (Anything But Chardonnay), and am embarrassed by my history of vicious varietal discrimination. Like most red-blooded 23-year-olds, I was rabidly opinionated and woefully uninformed. I knew nothing about wine except I loved Cabernet, and that all California Chardonnays tasted like butter, they were all “oaky”, and I hated them all. They were for country-clubbers who loved listening to Kenny G and having a glass with lunch. And no one could tell me I was wrong.

I was totally wrong.
