Special notes

An old Valais grape variety, also called "Landroter" or "Rouge du Pays". It was officially baptized as Cornalin in 1972 because it has similarities with the name of an ancient grape variety from the Aosta Valley. This grape is unique to the Valais, but its parents, the Mayolet and Petit Rouge are from neighbouring Val d'Aosta. The first records of its existance date back to the XIth century. A written passage from 1313 refers to a vine that was cultivated between Granges and Lens. It could be the famous "Landrote."By 1952, it could only be found in the municipalities of Granges and Lens. If the cultivated area was still less than 10 hectares in 1990, it was already 37.5 hectares in 2000 and 53.4 hectares in 2002. Cornalin is a late grape variety and consequently, it requires the best land for cultivation.
