Viognier most likely comes from the vineyards of Condrieu and Ampuis in the north of the Rhone valley, where it was first recorded in 1781. Its allegedly Croatian origin (Vis island) was disproven by paternity tests revealing that it is a parent or an offspring of Mondeuse Blanche, which means it is related to Mondeuse Noire, and more astonishingly, to Syrah. In Switzerland, Viognier is cultivated particularly in the Geneva region where it produces perfumed, corpulent, complex wines.
