This wine comes from the Valais, the upper part of the Rhone Valley which stretches from Switzerland to the South of France. The dry and warm climate is perfect for the production of well structured white wines and powerful reds. The most important red grapes are the world-famous Pinot noir and the fruity and spicy Gamay. Highly in demand are the two rare specialties Humagne rouge and Cornalin. The origin of these two grapes which share common characteristics is unknown. Their wines belong to the most sought-after Swiss wines and are a great match for game and lamb. Due to their great structure, they are often aged in oak barrels.
