For many years we have wanted to supplement our winery’s
repertoire of great red wines with a high-quality
white wine that would be modern yet with a close tie to
the territory. To reach thiChardonnay, Sauvignon
blanc and Viognier, three prestigious grape varieties
that have been grown on our hills for years.
Straw-yellow with pale green nuances. Delicate aroma;
full, complex, dry and harmonious flavour.
Serving temperature 8°-10°C
The origin of the Viognier grape is unknown; it is presumed to be an ancient grape, possibly originating in Dalmatia (present day Croatia) and then brought to Rhône by the Romans. One legend states that the Roman emperorProbus brought the vine to the region in 281 AD; another has the grape packaged with Syrah on a cargo ship navigating the Rhône river, en route to Beaujolais when it was captured, near the site of present-day Condrieu, by a local group of outlaws known as culs de piaux.[5
