Switzerland - Weingut Christ - Badoux Vins

Switzerland You are exploring our Swiss wines.
Rainer Christ is one of the best in Vienna.
His main vineyards lie on the gently sloping south-facing Bisamberg Hill on the north-eastern boundary of Vienna.

The Bisamberg is apparently the most easterly Alp so Christ's wines are technically Alpine. But even if they weren't I would have to list them, as he produces such amazing bottles.

The Christs have been winemakers for 400 years and today the property is a remarkable blend of old and new with modern cellars and cutting-edge architecture.

He is also a pioneer of very gentle wine production methods, trying to minimise histamines in the wine. People sensitive to histamines will appreciate. The wines are also certified Vegan.

Rainer was a pioneer in reviving the classic Viennese Gemischter Satz. Other highlights of his range are the Zweigelt Bisamberg and the Pinot Blanc.
We think the Pinot Blanc is one of the best anywhere, and also the secret behind why the Gemischter Satz is so good

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. 

Switzerland is a fabulous winemaking country and one of the most wine crazy countries. In Switzerland wine is so embedded in life and land that almost everyone either is a winemaker or knows one (usually many). The Swiss also have very high expectations of quality, sustainability and ecology, which means the wines are not just excellent, they are also clean and green. The vineyard landscapes are stunning, with unique terroirs and an exhuberance of native and internation varieties. This is a wine lover's dreamland.

Being Swiss, I am able to source wines that are very hard to get - sometimes only because my parents already bought them! I have chosen some of the best representatives of Switzerland's wine scene - classic family wineries, top cooperatives and cult winemakers.
