Idle Cellars is thrilled to announce that we have won a silver medal for our 2012 Viognier at the 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
As the first wine competition we have entered we are humbled to be recognized for our craft. We are certainly proud of our 2012 Viognier with grapes hand selected from Kick Ranch Vineyard, the delicate white has hints of pear, pineapple and Crenshaw melon. It pairs well with a variety of meals and flavors, providing us with a multitude of idle moments. Grab a case on our website before word gets out: https://idlecellars.com/store/idle-cellars-viognier
