Right, so I am a born and raised Northern Californian and a full-fledged, Real Housewives Approved wino. And I love chardonnay. And I have zero shame (I know too many wine snobs who roll their eyes with the "oh my god not chardonnay, try any other varietal"). Fuck you, haters!
Anyhow, I digress. Bogle has been a long long time favorite of mine. It's made in the country of Amador, nearby (I am in Sacramento), and it's mid-range to cheap (depending on how many figures you bring in a year...it's typically tagged from 8-10 bucks).
IT IS THE BEST MID-RANGE CHARDONNAY AND THIS DECLARATION REQUIRES ALL CAPS.
I always knew it, but I've seen it popping up more and more in magazines and the like. So, this is my official recommendation. Buy it, and drink it. Immediately if not sooner.
