You all will be drinking the very first bottles of this Viognier ever sold in the United States, and we put it on sale for $7.99 to celebrate!

We've opined time and time again here that we need more sub $10 wine in our lives, and this one is checking all of the boxes for me and then some.

We’re familiar with Viognier, right? Ten years ago, probably not. More than a half century ago the grape was forgotten; near extinct. Certainly, two or three decades ago, only a few were true believers. But amongst them were some California and Australia winemakers.

In the 1980s, especially in California vineyards, things blew up, with acreages tripling and quintupling and other terms I’ve forgotten. There were a few successes, but many were too ripe, unbalanced and often as not smothered in new oak, like that helped. It might be unfair to say, but most in the second wave just didn't do justice to the grape or that first group of winemakers. The pioneering wineries like Alban Cellars did first rate work. On their heels, others like Calera made well-balanced aromatic versions – they knew they needed less ripeness to achieve their aim. The French too know well that the grape has to be in the right spot; the northern Rhone offers a small bit of acreage. Winegrowers have found the ideal and specific conditions in other places over the last thirty years, as the Viogniers of the northern Rhone have become pricey and sought-after. Elevated spots in the Pays d’Oc are this wine’s source; to a great degree this is the grape’s frontier now.

Think dry, floral, peachy fruits and plenty of zest. Pairs perfectly with Tuesday night :)


Happy Tuesday! Let's get to it!
