When we think of wine we typically think of a beautiful meal paired perfectly with an equally as glamourous dish, but we are here to dispel that notion. In fact, you can enjoy some of your favourite guilty pleasures and a glass of Chardonnay while experiencing a perfect palate partnership.


If popcorn is your go to indulgence on the couch in front of Netflix, then you have come to the right place. The rich buttery popcorn will draw out the nutty and smooth complexities of the Chardonnay. The buttery Chard perfectly complements popcorn which we have all been guilty of making a little too buttery. Your new best friend for movie night.


More than just the snack you grab at your favourite theme park, pretzels actually make an effortless companion with Chardonnay. After all what better to do with a giant and soft pretzel then dip it in butter. In this instance, the pretzel perfectly matches with the buttery notes of your favourite Chardonnay.

Potato Chips

Regular potato chips go great with Chardonnay or even a Sparkling wine. The balance and acidity in Chardonnay stand up to the fat and saltiness in potato chips. So now you have no better excuse to pull out a bag when you're enjoying a cold glass of Chardonnay.
