Similarly, Walsh says this about Virginia's austere production of Viognier: "Viognier works very well in Virginia. I've had dozens of world-class Viogniers from Virginia wineries. I feel fortunate that a lot has been done in the past twenty years to hone in on how to treat it in the vineyard and how to treat it in the cellar. At Sunset Hills, we ferment some in the tank and some in neutral barrels, all at low temperatures to slow the fermentation and retain some of the floral aromatics. We make a higher acid Viognier, which, I think, makes an easier food wine." The Canneys have successfully merged the talents of many people who then helped to bring their vision to lifeā€”and at the same time they have demonstrated their commitment to sustainability, aesthetics and strong local connections. Come share in the relationships by enjoying a glass of wine on their tasting deck and relishing the local fine food. After all, that's really what great wines, great life, not to mention great art, are all about. aaaaa Sunset Hills sits on acres of beautiful rolling hills and offers tastings all week long. Joining the Estate Wine Club (click HERE) grants some privileges not available to the general public, and is an excellent way for online wine connoisseurs to connect with Sunset Hills. Alex Carr is a local Loudon County watercolorist who is presently the resident artist at Sunset Hills. Her art adorns the labels of the wine and she also offers painting classes. Her obvious love for art, life's little pleasures and people make her a perfect match for building relationships with visitors.
