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.

Grape variety: Chasselas
Indigenous | 3672 HA in Switzerland (25,14%)

The most common white grape variety in Switzerland, Chasselas is a very old variety originating in the Lake Geneva region, where it was already known as Fendant in the 17th century. It is a wine that expresses the terroirs where it is grown beautifully. The great Chasselas give complex and rich wines, presenting a range of fruity, floral and mineral flavors, with good acidity which makes them suitable to age in the cellar for a few years.

Grape variety: Chardonnay
International (planted after 1900) | 386HA in Switzerland (2,64%)

A natural cross between Pinot and Gouais Blanc, Chardonnay was probably born in Saône-et-Loire (FR) where it is mentioned at the end of the 17th century. Its kinship makes it a brother of Gamay, Aligoté, Melon and other lesser-known grape varieties, and allows us to understand why it has long been confused with Aligoté and Pinot Blanc. Its name comes from the Chardonnay village near Mâcon (Burgundy). In Switzerland, it produces wines whose aromas vary greatly depending on the terroir and the vinification, ranging from lime to vanilla butter.
