Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Merlot
International (planted after 1900) | 1177 HA en Suisse (8,06%)

Merlot is a variety from the Gironde (FR) and is used for blends in great Bordeaux wines. Merlot wines generally have a medium body with notes of berries, plum and black currant. In Switzerland, following the phylloxera disease which almost wiped out the vines in Switzerland and Europe, it is successfully established in Ticino where it has become the emblematic grape variety of the canton, after its introduction in 1906.

Grape variety: Garanoir
Indigenous | 228 HA in Switzerland (1,56%)

Garanoir is a cross between Gamay and Reichensteiner. Garanoir was obtained in 1970 at the Agroscope research center in Pully (Switzerland) with the aim of creating a grape variety similar to Gamay, but more resistant and rich in color. Officially marketed in 1990, it is a brother of Gamaret and Mara. Grown only in Switzerland, its wines are colorful, fruity, supple, and are often used in blending.

Grape variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
International (planted after 1900) | 67 HA in Switzerland (0,46%)

A leading figure in Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely used grape varieties in the world. The unexpected discovery of his parentage in 1997 caused a stir: it is a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, a cross which probably took place in Gironde before the 18th century. It is therefore a half-brother of Merlot and Carmenère. In Switzerland, this grape variety is grown mainly to make Bordeaux blends (with Cabernet Franc and Merlot), bringing notes of blackcurrant and blackberries.
