A wild grape variety that is happy in cold, dry conditions, Pinot Noir loves the limestone soils that can be found everywhere in the region of Sierre and Salgesch.
The first grand cru variety in Valais, Pinot Noir creates excellent wines that are distinguished by their great length in the mouth and smooth tannins.A little secret about Pinot Noir: as with Merlot, the world capital for Pinot Noir is none other than Sierre ... because the annual ‘Mondial du Pinot’ competition is organised in our region!
Introduced in Valais in the mid-19th century, Pinot Noir allowed viticulture to develop in Valais.
