Welcome to the new version of Fine Swiss Wine! This visual design is somewhat temporary while we focus on adding new features and content. We’ve built this incarnation with Drupal, which will allow us to be lean, mean and have more flexibility.

Be ready for even more changes in the weeks ahead, since along with new content, you will see new ways of viewing information, finding facts, and discovering Swiss wine.


The Wine Grapes of Switzerland

Sauvignon blanc

One of the classic grapes of France, Sauvignon blanc is planted in most wine regions of the world. It produces a wide range of wine styles.


A very ancient grape probably from Greece, Muscat Blanc is a delicate, difficult variety to cultivate. It is an aromatic specialty limited almost exclusively to Valais. Producing a fine, perfumed aperitif and dessert wine, Muscat Blanc should be served in its prime.


Himbertscha is one of the rare indigenous white varieties from Haut-Valais, mostly at home in the vineyards of Visperterminen (Upper Valais). The name Himbertscha is said to come from a raspberry (himbeer in German) taste of the wine himbeerartigen. Jose-Marie Chanton who specializes in cultivating the old vines from Wallis makes this wine available under the quality label “Brantignon”. He also cultivates the Himbertscharebe, another “rediscovered” old Walliser white wine.

To eat, to drink and to be merry.
