A cooperative with over 500 members, the St. Jodern Kellerei still produces its wines according to traditions that date back centuries. The special soil conditions of Europe’s highest vineyard in Switzerland’s Visperterminen, as well as their exclusive reliance on working by hand, guarantee that St. Jodern Kellerei’s wines remain distinctive and exclusive. “All associates of our cooperative competently process their parcels of land as a side job,” Markus Burgener, manager of St. Jodern’s wine-growing cooperative, explains. Founded in 1979, the concept and goal behind the project was to collectively market the wines, while preserving the tradition of the Visperterminen and the Visper Valley.
