Domaine de Maison Blanche
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 (yes, it's all part of my dastardly plan to make sure my winemakers never look for another importer). What can I say - I will stop at nothing when they are that good!
