Wines from Switzerland

Swiss wines are produced in an alpine territory (60%), with particularly rugged, steep and high altitude landscapes (up to 1100m in Valais). Often snow-covered, having to cope with fairly low average temperatures, the Swiss terroir has specificities like no other. Wine-growing and harvesting techniques were ingeniously invented several centuries ago and are perpetuated from father to son and from generation to generation.

Produced in six distinct regions, Swiss wines are very varied: from the heart of the Alps with the Valais, to the shores of Lake Geneva with the canton of Vaud, with distinctly German-speaking Swiss wines, the canton of Geneva, Ticino looking south of the Alps to Italy, and finally the three-lake region in the Jura.

Swiss wines: the expression of a magnificent terroir
About 240 different grape varieties are listed among Swiss wines! Of course, four grape varieties are the most common: Pinot Noir, Chasselas (Fendant in Valais), Gamay and Merlot, which together account for 72% of the vines. Of course, it is the indigenous grape varieties that make Swiss wines special, such as Gamaret, Humagne, Cornalin le Garanoir for the reds and Chasselas, (small) Arvine and Amigne for the whites. The universal grape varieties allow Swiss winegrowers to position their wines among the others, thus demonstrating their know-how.

Only 1% of Swiss wine production is exported and the Swiss are among the biggest importers of foreign wine, making them major consumers, with 85 million litres per year! Finally, although small, the Swiss market is full of great discoveries. An important part of culture, society and history, Swiss wine is being tasted and appreciated by more and more connoisseurs and a real leap in quality has been made.
