Areas of cultivation In Italy Viognier is spreading mainly in warm climate regions (Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Umbria, Lazio) where it is generally assembled with other grapes.
History The Viognier vine originates from the Rhone Valley, France, where it was introduced by Emperor Marco Aurelio Probo, originally from Sirmia (Sremska Mitrovica) in Serbia, so it is possible that its origins are Balkan. For a long time, due to the low productivity, Viognier has come back to the fore in recent times as White Condrieu (Côte du Rhone) wines are difficult to find and are characterized by low acidity and remarkable olfactory intensity. To confirm its origins, we find it cultivated also on the island of Vis (Dalmatia) under the name of Vugava or Bugava.
