The Chedi Friandises

The Domaines Chevaliers wine-growing estate

"Our winery is our life. This sun-drenched location in the Salgesch vineyards inspires us daily, especially in the autumn, when the leaves of the vines become resplendent with rich colours and the grapes mature to perfection." 

Patrick Z’Brun and his team have infused a new spirit into this prominent winery – an inheritance with considerable standing: Vins des Chevaliers was once flown all over the world on board Swissair. Oswald Mathier-Küchler founded the company "Vins des Chevaliers" in 1936. His unerring instinct for future developments also spurred him on to pioneering achievements. He tilled the soil particularly deeply and used a revolutionary method to do so. The other wine growers were initially taken aback, but afterwards recognised the increase in fruit quality. Success also followed. 

Drive, ideas, entrepreneurial spirit and, above all, a passion for wine: Patrick Z’Brun now also looks to the future with the mind-set of a lateral thinker. One who is fully cognisant of the roots for which he and his team are developing visions. And Sherpa wines is one of those visions. The sales proceeds from these red and white wine blends benefit the Swiss Sherpa Foundation which was founded by Z’Brun and which, among other things, enables Sherpas to train as mountain guides. 

The winery was renamed Domaines Chevaliers in 2017. Lux Vina, a new brand, is a recent addition to the estate’s traditional Vins des Chevaliers brand. 

The team assisting Patrick Z’Brun and his oenologist Christian Gfeller have for years observed and analysed the vineyards. Older terraced locations that were in part difficult to access have been revitalised; dry stone walls have been repaired. The oldest vines are well over 50 years old. They might produce smaller yields, but their grapes exhibit extremely complex fruit. Lux Vina was created to offer these vines a fitting stage. The powerful and energetic wines are impressive examples of how a perfect synthesis of unique geological conditions and excellent amounts of sunshine in combination with a mild, Mediterranean climate can give rise to wines displaying a very particular character of origin. 

Lux is Latin for light. Lux Vina is also a tribute to Patrick Z’Brun’s mother who was baptised with this intriguing first name. Patrick’s son, Vital, is responsible for the wine labels. These visualise the philosophy and the history of the family. He has used the logo to reference a favourite piece of jewellery belonging to his grandmother. The intense colours of the labels allude to the colours fashionable in the 1930s, the decade in which Lux Z’Brun was born and Vins des Chevaliers was founded. In this sense, Lux Vina can also be said to be an intergenerational project.

Deeply rooted, of premium quality and forward looking – a precis of Lux Vina by Domaines Chevaliers.

Musical entertainment in Disentis

URSINA

She grew up in Disentis, attended the Institute for Jazz in Lucerne, studied in Copenhagen and recorded her debut album "You have my heart" in Berlin. She now lives in Zurich. It is a worldliness, openness and broad-mindedness that is also evident in the high-calibre pop music of Ursina. This is mainly attributable to Ursina's voice: soft-toned and penetrating – yet imbued with emotions. Her songs pay homage to a slower pace of life and celebrate solitude and love in equal measure.
