Tanner Vineyards

Published January 22, 2013

Terrific Vermentino blended with Viognier at Tanner Vineyards! They should have called it V2 or Double V because it is a velvety vinification. On its own, Viognier is like the truffle oil of grapes; it can too easily overwhelm and overpower. Vermentino brings light crisp acidity to this blend and the wine has wonderful structure with both giving their best.

The long Tanner history in Murphys is clear just from a visit to their tasting room across Main street from Alchemy. All over the walls are photos of this family business dating back several generations. They are such a staple for locals and visitors that most tasting room patrons were greeted by their first names.
