Maiolatesi in Pa. makes a VG viognier from LI fruit. It got me intrested in what LI was doing with with the variety. Surprised there's not that much of it.

Bedell, before using it in their three blends, used to bottle it on its own. It was good.

I think the biggest issue is that there just isn't a lot planted here.

I can think of 2 more acres of Viognier to be planted next month.

Charlie Hargrave (Peconic Bay Winery) is planting 2 acres of Viognier to complement a new five acre parcel of Sauvignon Blanc.

Like Bedell, I believe Viognier is a wonderful blending grape, with both white and red wines. On its own, less often good, but always interesting.

Nice blog. Enjoyed it very much as Viogner from California is one of my favourite. Keep on posting.
