Yeast Style Guide

STYLE: Viognier

Back to Styles List

Viognier grapes have a deep yellow color and a high sugar level when fully ripe. Wines made with Viognier tend to be alcoholic with a strong aromatic profile of peaches and apricots and a relatively low acid level. Viognier is increasingly grown in California and has seen promising success in eastern Washington state.

Viogneir has been grown in the northern Rhône for centuries but almost disappeared in the 1960's. A resurgence in popularity of red wines of the Rhône caused an increase in demand for Viognier, which is used to perfume the red wine blends.
