Tasting Notes

A pioneer in the renewal of the Condrieu appellation, Domaine Georges Vernay has always made wines notable for their finesse. The property has become a major emblem of Rhône, from the time when Georges Vernay saved the Condrieu appellation to the accolades earned by Christine Vernay’s red wines. Three generations have left the mark of the philosophy on the estate, while perpetuating its traditions in the greatest respect for both vines and winegrowers.
