Swiss Wine – The New Grape Frontier

By Zahra Al-Kateb

We love the watches. And the chocolates. And the efficiency. But not, until recently, the wine.

However, wines produced in the region around Lake Geneva for centuries are finally gaining recognition. Most notable is Jean-René Germanier, producer of a collection of elegant wines (recently commended by Decanter magazine for its Cayas Syrah Reserve 2011). Then there is Domaine des Muses, whose Robert Taramarcaz makes award-winning Dole (a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay) and crisp Heida on the small family estate near Sierre. Raymond Paccot, who produces in collaboration with top swiss chef Fredy Girardet, is also a name to note. This is one wine locale set for bigger things than its rather unimaginative image might suggest.
