In 1965 only a miserable eight
hectares of Viognier (pronounced Vee-on-yay) grape
existed in its Northern Rhône homeland
appellation of Condrieu.
Viognier is fast growing in
popularity - the choice of drinkers and growers
alike. The last ten years has seen a massive
increase in Viognier production throughout the
world and more recently we have begun to see
bottles on our supermarket shelves - challenging
the monopoly of Chardonnay.
