Viognier is the signature white grape of Virginia which expresses itself wonderfully in the Commonwealth. Internationally, Virginia Viognier has consistently earned praise for its high quality, and planting of the grape is quickly growing within the state. Viognier typically has intense, complex aromas of stone fruit with tropical notes such as pineapple and orange blossoms which suggest a sweet wine, but it is usually made in a dry style. It accompanies rich dishes such as lobster, veal, cheeses and pork well, and particularly shines when paired with a rich sauce.
