So, for the Viognier-impaired among you, and you seem to be many, and proud of it , here are some suggestions....

I could go on and on.. but if you can't find a Viognier you like from that group,then, like GWB and broccoli, maybe you just don't like Viognier, which is ok, since that keeps the demand down.. and all of the above (except the Alban), sell for $20 or less... so.. .more for those of us who lap this juice up.

"[< French Viognier (1845 or earlier); further origin uncertain and disputed (cf. -ier -IER).
Several suggestions have been made as to the origin of the French word, including derivation from Vienne, the name of a city in the northern Rhône region where the grape was traditionally grown, and Vugava, the name of an island off the Dalmation coast from which the vine is said to have been imported, although the former presents phonological problems and the latter appears not to be supported by historical evidence."
Is there any more specific learning on the subject?
