In the middle of the Alps lies one of Europe’s unique winemaking regions: the Swiss Valais, home to more than 5,000 hectares of prime vine-growing soil. Here, quality wines are not only defined by their outstanding taste but also by their unique character – just like those grown by Pierre-Alain Mathier on the Domaines des Virets. “For me acquiring this vineyard was a commitment to the winemaking tradition of my family and a declaration of love towards my geographical home,” says Pierre-Alain Mathier, owner of the impressive vineyard, Domaines de Virets.
