Present in Valais since the start of this millennium, Merlot loves the quality of the soil and vines with plenty of sun exposure. This variety produces wines that are characterised by their dark purple colour and blueberry notes.A little secret about Merlot: the world capital for Merlot is none other than Sierre ... because the annual ‘Mondial du Merlot’ competition is organised in our region!
The most widely grown variety in France, Merlot can be found in (practically) all the vineyards in the world.
