Viognier is a white grape from the Rhône Valley, grown especially in Condrieu, where a very soft and fragrant wine is obtained, and which is also present in many areas of southern France.

It was brought there by Phocian immigrants in the 1st century AD.

Like Chardonnay, Viognier has the potential to produce full-bodied and soft wines. Unlike chardonnay, the viognier varietal has more natural aromas, including notes of peach, pear, violets and minerals.
