2011 Debutantes




Chardonnay Chenine d’Asti (John Ford)

Donate to Me

It was a brutal fall day in 1973 in the vineyards of Casale Monferrato when the lovely Lady Grigio d’Oro (cousin, twice removed of Lady Chatterley) prepared iced espresso and biscotti for the vineyard workers. Lady Grigio, being the heiress of Riunite fame and fortune, was raised as a proper upper class Dame of Piedmont, Italy society. However, she wasn’t without her faults! The sight of Giovanni Vinifera, a handsome vineyard laborer, made her loins yearn for a close encounter with this young man.

In the spring of 1974, Lady Grigio gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and named her Chardonnay Chenine d’Asti. Lady Grigio knew that the result of her unrequited love for Giovanni would NEVER be accepted by Italian society. Because of this, Chardonnay was sent to be raised by relatives, the Duke and Duchess Tosti Asti Spumante, in the “New World” of Atlanta, Georgia, or more specifically, Buckhead proper.

For most of her tender years, Chardonnay Chenine would attend the Eastland School for Girls. It was her mentor, Ms. Garrett, or “Mrs. G” as she was affectionately called, who encouraged her to use her fame, fortune and congeniality to do something positive for Atlanta society. In late 2010, Ms. Chardonnay Chenine d’Asti decided it was time to thrust herself into the Atlanta Cotillion. As always, the families of Grigio, Spumante, and many others, expect great things from Ms. d’Asti as a debutante for the 2011 class .
