The wine village of Varen is devoted to cultivating wine as naturally as possible. Their Pfyfoltru wines get their name from the Valais dialect word for butterfly. They stand for nature and ecology as well as health and wellbeing. As IP wines – which also refers to their natural viticulture – their fame extends far beyond the borders of Switzerland.
Wine plays a defining role in more or less everything in Varen. Whether you enjoy the fermented grape juice in a wine cellar or accompany the winegrower on a walk through the vineyards – this is the perfect place to get up close and personal with oenology. The village also offers you a perfect vantage point to take in the magnificent views across the Rhone Valley and Pfynwald Forest.
