Miner Viognier 2006
External Reviews for Miner Viognier
These grapes are grown in a little known area not typically thought of as a primary source of fine wine grapes. But, the proof is in the bottle! These low-yielding vines produce grapes of unusual concentration, purity of flavor and electrifying vibrancy. The wings of the Miner label serve as an homage to family, heritage and place. Founder Dave Miner’s grandfather arrived in this country from Persia in 1914. His ancestry, tracing back numerous generations, leads to the people, culture and heritage of ancient Assyria. The Miner Family wine label is based on an ancient Assyrian relief in the image of a Winged Sun God. This symbol represents the brilliant light of the sun, which illuminates the life of mankind while providing energy and warmth to the grapevines. It also represents abundance and prosperity and brought life and health to the vines of the family’s distant ancestors. It is the hope that Miner Family Vineyards and those who enjoy their wines, will prosper with this good fortune for many years to come.
