HISTORY

In 2011 we tasted the first wines of Cabernet Blanc from German vineyards and were immediately convinced of the quality.

THE VISION WAS QUICKLY BORN

In Valais, otherwise known for its intensive cultivation, we want to develop an ecological alternative at least equal to traditional wines.

In addition to the well-known problem of plant protection, there is also the danger in Valais that traditional steep slopes will be abandoned more and more because of the high maintenance and cultivation costs, and that viticulture will concentrate only on sites that are easier to cultivate. 

With our project, we also want to give a future to sustainable viticulture in the steep slopes, which have been planted with vines for centuries, with top quality wines.

 

2020 - July

After a comprehensive tasting by the Vinum team, Shot No 03 made it into the guide "The Route 66 of the best organic wines". We are very happy about this and of course a bit proud.

2020 - January

The Shot No 04 is ready in the steel tank for our first tasting. Once again we are thrilled by the skill of Nicolas Zufferey, as this vintage will be top again. However, we will allow him some more time until bottling
