About This Wine

Del Rio Vineyards farms 300,000 grapevines in southern Oregon.

The rocky south-facing slopes of the vineyard, sited in the Rogue River Valley community of Gold Hill, drain well and provide excellent terrain for producing premium wine grapes. The man selected to take care of those grapes is Rob Wallace, who grew up in the Northern California town of Arbuckle, about 70 miles north of Sacramento.

Wallace represents the fourth generation of his family to farm the land, growing wheat, rice, tomatoes and vegetables. When Lee Traynham asked him to manage Del Rio in 2000, Rob was intrigued by the challenge and change, so along with his wife, two sons and daughter, the Wallaces moved to Gold Hill.

Among the estate wines crafted at Del Rio Vineyards is a complex and elegant Viognier that embodies a rich and elegant style. Floral and fruitful, it’s a delicious example of quality-focused winegrowing.

About Viognier

Rare grape of France's Rhone valley. Produces a floral, full-bodied spicy wine. Yields vary widely and it's hard to grow in other places.
