BookCliff Viognier 2014 fares well in blind tasting

Paula Mitchell from Exploring Colorado Wineries gave us some nice compliments for our 2014 Viognier. She tasted five Viogniers blind. Among them was a wine from Chile, California, Australia and France and Colorado (Bookcliff Vineyards). In the quest for something else than Chardonnay many regions planted Viognier and gave it a try. Two areas we recently visited, the Okanagan region in British Columbia and Amador county in California produce Viognier. And as Paula pointed out many Colorado wineries produce great Viognier.
