It was at Vergina restaurant in Naples, Florida that I first had the William Fèvre Chablis. Surprisingly, the wine list at Vergina featured many California and other new world wines, but very few Italian or European wines by the glass, which for Italian/Mediterranean dining seemed unexpected. Moreover, the selections available were the typical ¨grocery¨ store finds- Beringer, Hess, La Crema, Coastal, Zonin, etc. I was in the mood for a still white with a little more elegance and when I saw the Chablis, I knew that would be my wine for the evening.
William Fèvre is a prestigious winery that is family owned since 1959 with vineyards across the historic terroirs of the Chablis region in northern Burgundy.  The domaine harvests by hand and ages the wines with a combination of stainless steel and old barrels in order to preserve the freshness. The result, a perfect balance of fruitiness and minerality with fresh bouquets and notes of citrus. This serves well with fish dishes grilled or in a light sauce, oysters, and sushi. Of course, it is also beautiful in a glass all by itself!
