Our winery is known for its wide range of specialities. We cultivate an extraordinarily large number of grape varieties on 18 hectares of our own vineyard land, which enables us to offer around 40 different wines.
St. Jodern Kellerei, Visperterminen on 4th December 2021
For 30 years the cooperative St. Jodern Kellerei has been able to offer wines from the highest vineyard in Europe. The grapes come from local cooperative members. The passion, the wine as a philosophy of life and the pursuit of the highest quality are the three components that accompany the employees in their daily work. Added to this is the healthy and diverse nature of the region, which allows the grapes to thrive in the vineyards of Visperterminen up to an altitude of 1,150 metres above sea level.

Leukersonne on 9th January 2022
The foundation of the Leukersonne company dates back to 1976 and was initiated by René Seewer. Together with his wife Marzella, the former hobby farmer devoted all his heart and soul to wine and grew over the years into a passionate winemaker. The then small family business became more and more a popular meeting place for wine lovers. What the parents made to their life's work, the sons Jörg and Damian continue since 1997 now. With the necessary respect for nature, with a lot of passion and love, we create high quality, characterful and multi-faceted noble wines.
Domaines Chevaliers SA, Salgesch on 16th January 2022
Our winery is our life. This sun-drenched place in the Salgesch vineyards inspires us every day. Patrick Z'Brun and his team have been filling this noble winery with new spirit since 2008 - a great legacy: Vins des Chevaliers once flew out into the world on board Swissair. Drive, ideas, entrepreneurial spirit and, above all, enthusiasm for wine: Patrick Z'Brun, another lateral thinker, is now on board. One who knows the roots for which he is developing visions together with his team. A good wine, like a loving home, has a soul. Both can be experienced happier if we share them with others. The doors of the Domaines Chevaliers are open to you.
Les Fils de Charles Favre on 23rd January 2022
For over 70 years we have distinguished ourselves through our excellent wines. Our winery was founded in 1944 by Charles, René-Pierre, Hanny and Jean-Pierre Favre, and we continue their unique legacy with passion. The ageing of wine is an art that requires great commitment, passion and creativity. This conviction led to the creation of our Dame de Sion, Hurlevent, Collection F and Favi wine ranges, which brilliantly combine the diversity and complexity of Valais grape varieties.
