Swiss Wine - Small and Perfectly Formed
Wine has been grown in Switzerland for 2,000 years. Yet very little is known about these wines outside of Switzerland. That is because the Swiss drink most of it, so Swiss wine is hard to find. Still, seeking out Swiss wine is worth the effort because the quality is exceptional.
The vineyards landscapes are enchanting and the diversity is incredible. Add to that a requirement to be sustainable and green, quality expectations unrivaled anywhere, with unique terroirs and varieties and you have a wine lover's dreamland.
In Switzerland wine is so embedded in life and land that everyone either is a winemaker or knows one (usually many). There are hundreds of small family producers and even the larger winemakers are small on the world scale, which allows for diversity and high quality. We have chosen some of the best representatives of Switzerland's wine scene - classic family wineries, top cooperatives and cult winemakers.
