Domaine Georges-Vernay

Press

  • "This iconic estate, long known for its splendid Condrieus, can also do brilliant work with red wines. The Condrieu portfolio is superb." (The Wine Advocate)

Basic Info

A tiny property run by Christine Vernay with holdings in Condrieu (8 ha), Cote Rotie (3 ha) and St. Joseph (1.5 ha). In the 1950’s the Vernay’s plantings of Viognier were literally the only ones left in the appellation, and they saved Viognier in Condrieu. Hand picked off of very steep slopes, and hand sorted before traditional elevage, all the wines are truly beautiful and the Vernay’s are certainly stand outs among northern Rhone producers.
