The taste of quality wines in the spirit of the Valais terroir

The Cave La Tine was reconstructed in 1984 under the direction of Hervé Fontannaz, viticultural and enological engineer.
Our domaine comprises 10 hectares of proprietary vineyards, situated on the sunbathed slopes of Ardon, Sion and Vétroz.
The vineyards are planted for the most part in steep terraces. Cultivation conforms to the strict norms laid down by Vinatura out of respect for nature and biodiversity.
Our wines are vinified following modern techniques in conjunction with an ancestral heritage handed down by a viticultural tradition of several generations. All our wines proudly display the Appellation d'Origine Controlée. The have won numerous prizes at various different international fairs and competitions (Nobilis, the National Concours of Swiss Wines, the Étoiles du millésime 2005 (IVV), Muscats du Monde, the Mondial de Bruxelles, among others).
On visiting our winery you'll find a convivial atmosphere, a welcoming bar and an old-fashioned canotzet (the ‘grotto' or ‘caveau' of the Valais) where we can accommodate up to 30 visitors. There, with the help of my wife, Dorita, we will introduce you to excellent wines such as:
