Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Our Viognier has vibrant aromas of peach, lemon blossom, honeysuckle, mango and tropical fruit. This dry wine has complex flavors beginning with tart green apple and citrus and finishing with pear and apricot. It pairs perfectly with grilled seafood and chicken, spicy Asian and Cajun dishes, fresh fruit and cheese platters and is refreshing on a hot summer day.
