Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.

Alto Adige: Alpenweine mit südlichem Charme

Am Alpenübergang gelegen verfügt das Südtirol über eine grosse Palette an Mirkroklimata und Bodentypen. Dies macht es möglich, dass hier über 20 verschiedene Sorten optimale Bedingungen vorfinden. Vernatsch, Lagrein und Gewürztraminer gelten als alteingesessene Südtiroler Gewächse, doch auch die Familie der Burgundergewächse finden hier ideale Bedingungen vor. In wichtigen Weinführern wie etwa dem «Gambero Rosso» erhält das Südtirol regelmässig die meisten Höchstbewertungen («Tre Bicchieri») im Verhältnis zur Rebfläche in ganz Italien.

Producers

Cantina Colterenzio

High above Sion on the Clos du Château lies the heart of the oldest wine company in the canton of Valais. The view across the wide Rhône valley is framed by the two hills of Tourbillon and Valère, surmounted by castles, and feasts on this magnificent vineyard landscape with its numerous terraces. Looking down into the valley from the Clos du Château, you will see the narrow path meander down the steep incline between the Chasselas-vines (Fendant) from Brûlefer.

The Guérite de Brûlefer welcomes guests on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Here you can treat yourself to hearty Valaisian specialities, first and foremost to the heavenly Raclettes. The Valais' greatest treasure is its diversity of grape varieties with some indigenous varieties such as Petite Arvine, Heida, Amigne, Cornalin, Humagne rouge and others, which thrive in this excellent climate for wine-growing.

The geological diversity of the Valaisian soil contributes to the rich diversity of these most exciting and interesting wines. To preserve this treasure, Bonvin 1858 Les Domaines have strongly committed themselves, since time immemorial, to sustainable viticulture. All wines proudly feature the Vinatura Label from Vitiswiss. Charles-Marie Bonvin, a cosmopolitan, energetic man, founded this winery in 1858. Soon after, he began winning medals for his wines: in London (1862), in Paris (1867) and finally at home in 1871. His descendants steadily enlarged the property and the wine trade.

For 25 years, the winery, now comprising 23 hectares, has been managed by André Darbellay with the support of Ambassador Christophe Bonvin and winemaker Thierry Delalay. In 2014, they were rewarded with a nomination for Swiss Winery of the Year at the Grand Prix du Vin Suisse in recognition of their tireless commitment.

Grape varieties

Pinot Grigio

The aromas of the forest

Pinot gris is, like the Pinot blanc, a colour mutation of Pinot noir. All three have the same genetic profile. On occasion, red, grey, pink and white, berries can be observed on the same vine stock. Some are even striped! The best Pinot grises introduce themselves opulently with ripe peach and apricot aromas, slightly woody notes and a bit of smoke. These characteristics are presented, for example, in examples from Alsace, Grauburgunders from Germany, or the representatives from Valais, where the grapes are erroneously referred to as Malvoisie. In Italy, Pinot grigio from South Tyrol and Friuli win out. Wines from this variety are great culinary companions. They get along superbly with autumnal dishes such as risotto with mushrooms or chestnuts.
