Details

Valentina Andrei is a very atypical winemaker. Based in the village of Saillon, in Valais, this charming young lady arrived in Switzerland from Romania in 2003, pursuing her passion for vines and wine. Indeed, it was at the early age of 12, during her first harvest in the family vineyards in the Carpathians, that she discovered her vocation. In 2003 Valentina arrived...in the Jura where she started babysitting. During a weekend with her host family, she visits the Valais where the revelation will be made. She will study at the engineering school of Changins where she will brilliantly pass her diploma. Noticed by the winegrower Marie-Thérèse Chappaz, she was quickly appointed cellar master at the estate.

In 2013, Valentina decided to go into business for herself, setting up her own winery in the former premises of former FC Sion captain Fernand Luisier in Saillon. From her first vintage, Valentina Andrei's wines were literally ripped out of the cellar. Having discovered biodynamics with Jacky Grange and then Marie-Thésèse Chappaz, this charming winemaker is pursuing this path with respect and humility in the face of nature, reinterpreting the classic Valaisan grape varieties with finesse.

2018, Selena Assemblage BLANC, Valentina Andrei, Saillon, Wallis, Schweiz. Noch verhaltene Nase, wirkt verschlossen, zeigt nicht viel Aromatik, lässt Zitrusfrüchte und eine pfeffrige Würze erkennen. Im Gaumen wie der Païen sehr offenherzig und mit einer gewissen Opulenz ausgestattet, bleibt dabei aber vertikal, sehr energetisch, lebendig, mit knackiger Säure und einer umwerfenden Würze im langen Abgang. Bravo! 18 vvPunkte (90/100).
