Eyholzer Roter (Hibou) - Gamay - Plantscher

Eyholzer Roter (Hibou) - Gamay - Plantscher

Gamay is such an exciting grape and has superb food-matching abilities which few other reds can match.

The Eyholzer Roter grape, also known as Hibou, is grown around Visp and in the village of Eyholz just to the west of Visp. It is extraordinarily rare with only 0.25 hectares left worldwide of which the only commercially available wine comes from the vineyards of Josef-Marie Chanton. This ancient variety has in the past, also been grown in Savoie in France and in northern Italy. The traditional method of growing the grape in Valais is to train it on pergolas. This wine is a medium red with a nose of mountain violets and raspberries. Soft and fruity on the palate, it is best served slightly chilled, as one would a young Beaujolais.

DNA testing has been unable to identify the parents of Eyholzer Roter.
