This Family Estate, now with its 3rd and 4th generations, was founded by the Viano family in 1920. They purchased the already planted vineyard which was established in 1888. It reminded them of their vineyards in Piedmont, Italy. This area, once so rich in grapes, was named Vine Hill and was home to more than 15 wineries. Some of the original vines still remain while the balance of the vineyard has been expanded and replanted to keep up with new world tastes and desires. Using the most natural, cultural practices possible, combined with traditional winemaking techniques which includes natural yeast and aging in small oak cooperage, we bring you these fine handcrafted wines. Viano wines are produced, bottled, and marketed directly. Because of this, Viano wines offer exceptional quality and value.
