Big. Bold. Buttery. Bogle. Bogle Chardonnay is one of the original fat, buttery styles that took NZ Chardonnay guzzlers by storm years ago and still has a cult like following today. They’re bonkers for Bogle and after one glass you’ll find out why.
The Bogle family are a sixth generation farming family. The first generation in 1870 moved to California from Tennessee and set about trying to grow cherries, peaches and pears. Sadly that failed for the Bogles, but better (or is that butterier?) things were to follow!
The fourth generation, in 1968, planted 20 aces of grapes and grew for other wineries in the region. In 1979 they built the winery, that still stands there today, and produced their own labels. Now up to the sixth generation of Bogle farmers and winemakers these guys show no signs of slowing up anytime soon.
Bogle Chardonnay is all sun drenched Californian grapes, barrel aged in American oak for 8 months. It’s big, rich, buttery goodness in a glass. Get Bonkers for Bogle!
And if you’re thinking of pairing Bogle with a feed here are some top tips from the Bogle crew in California. Our personal favourite has to be a glass of Bogle with a Butter chicken pizza! But if it’s a vegetarian option you’re after try a pumpkin and ginger soup.
