Degustation notes

Dark ruby colour, a full-bodied berry bouquet concentrated with dominant strawberry aromas, balanced and muscular on the palate, a structured body with pleasant tannins and long in the mouth.

Special notes

Red AOC wine from the Valais is made strictly from Pinot Noir or a blend of red grapes, whose grapes must reach at least 73-83° Oechsle (the exact range is determined every year). A blend must be composed of at least 80% Pinot Noir and Gamay, with a majority of Pinot Noir. Provins is a cooperative that was founded in 1930, following a difficult time for winemaking. Wine producers got togetherto form a company to produce and bottle their products, to start. Later on, they created a structure to market their products. Provins is now the largest producer of Swiss wines, we represent about 23% of the production in the Valais and 10% in Switzerland overall. There are more than 4,400 members - wine producers show their trust in the cooperative by providing about 10,000,000 kilos of grapes, annually.
