Although demand has slowed since the 1990’s, in 1998, the viognier varietal was grown in more than 1000 acres. Currently, there are fewer than 300 acres of viognier grapes in Rhône, but it is being grown in parts of the world such as the aforementioned California, Washington, Virginia, Chile, and Australia.

  Since they opened ten years ago, Wild Women Wine has been a staple in the Denver urban winery scene. Owners Charlene and Ross (the winemaker of it all) are getting ready to celebrate the ten year anniversary of being open; in that time they’ve seen the Colorado Wine scene grow and boutique wineries make their mark.
