Viognier Simpson Vineyard


Grower John Simpson’s sustainably-farmed vineyard in the warm, sunny Madera region of Central California has been our Viognier source since 1997. Whole cluster-pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks, this vibrant Viognier displays tropical and stone fruit characteristics with a consistent balance of natural acidity and intense concentration. Best enjoyed within three years of the vintage.

Viognier, Simpson Vineyard

San Francisco Chronicle, Top 100 Wines of 2013, November 2013

“Miner has, improbably, been using John Simpson’s Viognier parcel in Madera County for more than a decade, and this latest version, fermented in steel, shows the pure, limpid aspects of Viognier: fresh honeysuckle, Meyer lemon and citron peel. It’s taut and heady, exotic without being overwrought, and exuberant enough to please the grape’s partisans.”

Simpson Vineyard

This little known area in California’s Central Valley is not typically thought of as a primary source of fine wine grapes. Proof positive is the Viognier we’ve produced from the low-yielding vines at Simpson Vineyard since 1997.
