Top 10 White Rhone Producers

Our favorites for #GTiWhiteRhone


« Prev Next » 8 of 12

California was the frontier for Rhône varieties two decades ago but that title has certainly been usurped by the great state of Virginia which is making a run for the title of Viognier Capital of the New World! With so many wineries opening up over a short period of time and much of their efforts being focused on Viognier, it’s easy to find both excellent and mediocre examples of the varietal. Time will distinguish those producers who really excel with the variety. Early returns indicate that Veritas is and will remain one of the leaders in this field.

Veritas produces a complete line of wines: white, red, dessert, sparkling and, in keeping with the region’s identity, even one from a hybrid grape. If you had to find the one Veritas wine that people are most familiar with, I’m guessing it has to be Viognier. Fresh, fruity and tropical, it embodies all the potential of Viognier in Virginia.
