About Viognier White Wine

About Viognier White Wine
If you had to use one word to describe the flavor profile of Viognier, it would be exotic. Aromas of this lovely variety range from peach pie and cream to pineapple and honeysuckle. Famed for its role as the grape of the rare white wine Condrieu from France's Rhone Valley, dozens of California producers, from Lodi to Santa Ynez Valleys now work with Viognier, as do a few producers in Washington State and even in Virginia.
