Chardonnay grapes

According to Wikipedia, there are between 5,000 to 10,000 different wine grapes (Vitis vinifera) in the world.  Mind blogging, isn’t it? To learn about wine varieties, I am going to add one white and one red varietal type to this page each week.  The attention will be on the most common types that produce the majority of the wines we consume. I figure that to be about 25 different grapes. We will start with the most popular varieties purchased in the United States. I will also offer my suggestions for solid value wines for each grape varietal plus the foods we like with these wines.
