Certified Valais brand wines

Although wine has been cultivated in Valais since the Iron Age, the expertise of its winemakers has evolved continuously to meet the quality standards that consumers expect. As part of this pursuit of quality, the Valais brand guarantees an ambitious and forward-thinking approach based on eco-friendly winegrowing and winemaking methods that respect the land, its people and their heritage. This procedure also ensures that the entire “vine-to-bottle” process takes place in Valais.

A collective approach to sustainable winemaking

The approach is designed for the long term and is based on thirteen measures focusing on the areas of winemaking, social engagement, oenology, heritage and communication.

13 measures

For the first three years, vines must be cultivated using eco-friendly production methods, while the following ten years are devoted to increasing biodiversity and optimising water use.

Strict specifications

Wines must be systematically tested based on strict specifications in order to carry the Valais brand logo.

The winemakers’ commitment

Certified winemakers commit to enhancing their plants and the soil alike by adopting sustainable methods of cultivation and production that respect the land and the people who work it, treating them fairly.
