Amigne

About this grape variety

This native, traditional Valais grape was to be found only in a handful of vine parcels, mainly around its home village of Vétroz, at the start of the 20th century.

Since then, Amigne has been far more widely planted, but the village, which is where the variety reaches its apex, remains at the heart of its production.

It is a late grape and produces wines that are generous, full and often just slightly sweet, with orange and mandarin notes.

The bunches are loose, allowing air to move freely and the grapes to remain healthier for longer on the vine. Late autumn sunlight brushes it warmly, giving the grapes a juice that is flavourful and very rich, almost oriental in its flavours. These are wines that increase in elegance with age. Amigne, whether dry or sweet, has an aging potential that is one of the best. After decades, the greatest years are simply sublime.
