Yves DeMestral, Domaine de Maison Blanche, Mont sur Rolle, Vaud, Switzerland - Top Swiss Winemaker Marie-Therese Chappaz' fantastic wines
Ideally situated on the shore of Lake Geneva, the Maison Blanche has been a wine estate in the hands of the de Mestral family since 1526. It is a beautiful location in one of the best classic vineyards of La Côte.
Today Yves de Mestral continues in the family tradition with innovation and passion and a growing reputation for excellence. The estate focuses principally and creatively on the typical Swiss grape which is the Chasselas with a few specialities purely out of passion - dessert and aged Chasselas but also Mondeuse Noire, Malbec and Savagnin.
Yves also makes wines from his uncle's vineyards in nearby Rolle - we list the Pinot Noir.
Yves' son Antoine spent 4 months working as an intern right here at Alpine Wines, some of you may remember him? and is now fully involved in the winery.
I'm very impressed with your service and will certainly be ordering more wine in the future. Having made several visits to Austria in the last few years, I've acquired a taste for their wine which, apart from Grüner Veltliner, is hard to find here. I was really pleased when my sister passed on your details. Although I'm only just tasting my second bottle, the quality is excellent-makes me almost imagine I am back in my beloved Tyrol!
Just a short note to thank you for all your help you gave me when buying the bottle of Swiss wine I purchased last Friday. It arrived on the next Monday afternoon as you said and was gratefully accepted by our Swiss friends
