Viognier

Viognier (vee-ohn-yay) is a white wine grape. Viognier wines are well-known for their floral and tropical aromas. Its popularity has increased greatly, since the 1980s, both in France and elsewhere around the world. While its most renowned incarnation is in the Condrieu appellation, in the Northern Rhône, it is used more and more frequently in white blends from the Languedoc-Roussillon and in other appellations of the Rhône and Southern France. It is also found in significant amounts in California and Australia, as well as in Virginia (where it has become an emblematic grape for the state) and in Canada. Traditionally, small amounts of viognier were added to syrah in the famous Côte-Rôtie appellation, and the tradition has since been picked up by a number of Australian producers.
