People. Mountains. Wine.
Our thing is people and mountains. We can't bring the mountains here and we can't always go there, but we can bring them home to our table. We can even stash them in our cellars!
The Alpine regions of Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France and Italy, share much in history, culture and lifestyle across languages and borders. Alpine Wines are the UK's merchant for fine wines from the Alpine regions. In short, we bring to the UK terroir-driven heroic wines from the mountain valleys and along the major rivers from the Alps: the Rhone, Rhine and Danube.
I love the Alps, I love those wines, and I love the winemakers whose work I try my best to support and share. And I think you will too.
Hot right now:
We start with our winemaker of the week. Julien and Christian Dutruy from the “Frères Dutruy” estate are brothers (as you might guess) who developed a lovely estate close to Geneva. They work organically and share the work - Christian in the vineyard, Julien in the cellar. Both are proud daddys and work toward making fine delicious wines.
They’ve also been awarded Cellar of the year which is a very renowned award in Switzerland.We’ll have new wines soon but for now we suggest you their exquisite Gamay. A bomb of crushed strawberries with a touch of spices and a great concentration! An exceptional Gamay
We’ll keep you posted when the new arrival will be there!
Domaine de la Maison Blanche in Mont-sur-Rolle on the shore of the Lake Geneva in Switzerland covered by snow.
With this cold weather, they are two solutions
> 1st option: Enjoy a fondue with a glass of their delicious Chasselas
> 2nd second option: warm up with bubbles tasting their lovely sparkling , Demi-Sec or Brut style.
It doesn’t need to be Valentine’s day to share a glass of fizz with your loved ones
The De Mestral family is a good example of tradition in movement. They innovate by planting original grape such as Malbec or Viognier but they moslty work using the most respectful manner to show terroir in their Chasselas. A lovely estate to discover on Alpine Wines

There you go > Cayas!
A magnificent Syrah full of pepper, bright red and black plum, lean but powerful, rich but fresh, full-bodied but elegant! Guess it would definitely our choice to pair with a loved one . It comes from Switzerland, in the heart of Valais, the most iconic Alpine region and it’s delicious. Thanks @gillesbesse - you always do a great job!
