Petite Arvine

Petite Arvine is the internationally renowned white Valais wine.

Its grape, Arvine, which is genetically linked to grapes from Italy’s Val d’Aosta and neighbouring France, has been grown only in Valais since 1602.

It is a delicate grape, sensitive to wind, and it ripens late. As a result it demands the most exposure to sun, but preferably not in overly dry soil.

Arvine gives a complete range of wines, each as exquisite and interesting as the last: the nervy dry version with its aromas of wisteria and grapefruit; the slightly sweet Petite Arvine with notes of rhubarb; and the many sweet flétris wines, often exceptionally concentrated, with very intense aromas of a wide variety of exotic fruits. In mouth, all of these wines are notable for their fine vinosity, supported by strong liveliness and a slightly salty touch–the signature of Petite Arvine.
