Velours d'Automne, Humagne Rouge

Red wine | Domaine du Mont d’Or, Valais AOC

Corded regional velvet
Humagne Rouge, an Alpine grape variety, can sometimes be rustic and wild. In the expert hands of Domaine du Mont d'Or, it sheds a little of its fur and appears satiny, with silky tannins. A perfect companion for the hunting season, it will also go well all year round with pâtés, terrines, and dried meat from Valais!

Les vendanges au Domaine du Mont d'Or

Domaine du Mont d’Or

The wine history of Valais is closely linked to the Domaine du Mont d'Or, its oldest estate, certified Bio-Bourgeon , symbolizing the challenges of local winegrowers. In the 19th century, several grape varieties, including Johannisberg, were introduced by the estate, paying homage to the Princes of Metternich with a distinctive green capsule. Since 1848, the year marking the birth of contemporary Switzerland, the Domaine du Mont d'Or has celebrated its terroir and perpetuated ancestral know-how. Its wines, true ambassadors of this centuries-old tradition, capture and express the very essence of this rich and authentic wine heritage.
