The Wine Grapes of Switzerland

Heida

From France’s Franche-Compté region, Heida is a rarity that is grown in the high vineyards of Visperterminen (Upper Valais) with the help of the warm Foehn winds. Probably brought into Valais by the Ligurians during their retreat into the mountains.

Blatina

A red wine grape of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Nobling

Nobling is a cross between Silvaner and Chassalas from Staatliches Weinbauinstitut at Freiburg. It’s being tested in Valais and can be found in retail.

One not only drinks the wine, one smells it, observes it, tastes it, sips it and--one talks about it.
