Surprise your friends with unusual wines such as a Flirt du Valais, a unique Ferradou in Switzerland, a Vegan wine, a 5-year-old Chasselas or a Blanc de Noir.
Our winemakers also want to please the new generation of #swisswinelovers. Discover with us 7 Swiss wines for young wine enthusiasts. Inspire yourself to demonstrate to your elders that young people also enjoy exceptional Swiss wines!
1. Flirt red or rosé from the Cave du Chavalard
A brand new wine, dedicated to young Swiss wine enthusiasts, complements the Cave Chavalard range. It is a fruity and generous wine, full of passion, hence its name: Flirt.
Diolinoir and Gamay come together to give birth to wines that are easy to drink, rosé or red, affordable in terms of price and to appreciate between friends and lovers of Swiss wines.
2. The Primo, the Ferradou of the Cantina il Cavaliere
The Primo is the first red wine of Loris Belossi, son of the owners of the Cantina Il Cavaliere in Contone. If the first white was L’Ottavo, Loris Belossi offers you this time a red wine from a grape variety, the Ferradou, which up to now did not exist in Switzerland.
It is a very trendy and modern wine. By adopting it, you will be the first to launch the “Ferradou style” since it has never been marketed in Switzerland before. A round well-structured red wine, with residual sugar and 6 months in barrels. It has everything it must have, says Roberto Belossi, the patriarch of Il Cavaliere.
A quality wine that will appeal to young wine enthusiasts, and to the not so young as well, who appreciate wines such as Amarone or Ripasso.
Available from November 2017! Surprise your friends with this new wine for Christmas 😉
3. Gregor Kuonen Blanc de Noir – Pinot Noir vinified in white
The Blanc de Noir is a creation from the Maison Gregor Kuonen in Salquenen. From Pinot Noir grapes harvested in the morning dew, it is immediately and delicately pressed. This gives it slightly pinkish notes. This white wine surprises with its vigorous aromas and its tannic structure due to the Pinot Noir.
This wine can be served as an aperitif or with a filet of féra, a duck breast, with brie or with an apple or pear pie.
4. A Chasselas of Château de Luins
Obviously the Chasselas – famous grape variety of Château de Luins! Classed as a vintage for the years 2015, 2010, 2009, a well-finished, ripe wine which is enjoyable to drink.
Laurent Baechtold recommends you to drink it as an aperitif by a lake, in a refuge on the mountain pasture or in the mountains. It can also be enjoyed around a fondue, with a dried meat dish and fish from the lake.
The Chasselas of Château de Luins is therefore a grape variety that adapts to all situations of your life and your desires!
5. A Drink and Wine at the Cantina Cavallini
Guided tasting of Ticino’s Merlot. Enjoy a Swiss-Italian break with your friends to visit the vineyard and cellar. Discover the Merlot, but also new flavours with the Chambourcin and the Arinarnoa, wines bearing the label “YES VEG”, accompanied by the cheese from the Muggio valley.
6. The Sauvignon Blanc of Château des Bois
Very fruity and dry, without residual sugar, the Sauvignon blanc of Château des Bois is “ideal when you are not used to drinking wine” says Nicola Seiler. It is versatile, you can drink it for the aperitif and also during the evening with your meal.
7. The Genestrerio, a Merlot Ticino DOC 2015.
The Genestrerio from Agriloro is a Merlot Ticino DOC 2015. A fruity wine that respects very well the tradition of the Merlot grape variety of the Ticino terroir. With its finesse and elegance it accompanies perfectly the simple dishes of the Ticino and Italian cuisine (but also other countries’). It is excellent for aperitifs with canapés and charcuterie, as a good alternative to white wine.
Here we are at the end of our selection of unique and special Swiss wines so that you, the young Swiss wine enthusiasts (and why not the not so young, too), can impress your guests!
Cheers, good health, dear #swisswinelovers!
