Veritas Vineyards and Winery

began in 1999 when Andrew and Patricia Hodson planted 5 acres of grapes as a passion project. Over the past two decades, Veritas has grown to include over 50 acres of vineyards and has succeeded in consistently producing a range of complex and elegant wines.

Viognier. Veritas. Virginia.

Viognier is our specialty white wine and the declared white wine of Virginia. We love Viognier made in a style that emphasizes the unique aromatic complexity of the grape. Pale gold in color, delicate orange blossom precedes aromas of ripe peach, apricots and orange zest. Deliciously opulent, the uplifting rush of apricot and peach are embedded in a rich mouthfeel that gradually fades into a tantalizingly long finish.

PAIRINGS: Peaches, Lobster, Shrimp and Grits, Thai Food
