Info about the grape variety

Cépage: Amigne
Indigenous | 42 HA in Switzerland (0,29%)

Native grape variety from Valais (Switzerland), Amigne was mentioned towards the end of the 17th century between Sierre and Sion, before settling in Vétroz which became its favorite land (70% of the surfaces of Amigne in the world). Although having Savagnin Blanc (Heida or Païen in Valais) and Gouais Blanc as possible grandparents, Amigne is an orphan. Its supposed Roman origin is not based on any serious element. Sensitive to coulure and millerandage, this chameleon grape can produce dry, mellow or sweet wines, the sugar level of which is indicated to Vétroz by a badge illustrating 1-2-3 bees.
