Whether the weekend has finally arrived or you’re just dreaming about it, this uplifting Viognier will help open the conversation. Named after NPR’s Weekend Edition—a set of two radio news programs that cover everything from human interest stories to current events—the wine comes with a great story to share with friends.

About 20 years ago, the Viognier grape variety had fallen out of fashion. Plantings were down to just a few acres in its home, the tiny appellation of Condrieu in France’s Northern Rhône Valley. But, happily, winemakers began to experiment with Viognier again...and wine lovers quickly embraced the wines’ heady floral/fruity charm. Today, Viognier has enjoyed a triumphant resurgence and makes some of the world’s most opulent whites.

As you’ll taste here, Viognier particularly thrives in California, where brilliant sunshine helps to develop its concentrated flavors. Hailing from the premium Lodi region and the great 2019 vintage, this exclusive white overflows with perfumed honeysuckle and ripe apricot notes, plus subtle hints of mango and pineapple.

A luscious treat on its own and equally delicious with a flavorful meal. (We love roasted white meats, creamy risottos or soft cheeses.) Order your bottles today, and don’t forget to share Viognier’s comeback story at dinner.
