Bonvin 1858 - les Domaines - Sion

About the winery

Bonvin 1858 is the oldest winery in Valais. It has greatly contributed to the reputation of Swiss wines and more particularly to the appellation d’origine contrôlée Valais.


Charles Bonvin cultivates 23.5 hectares of vineyards on the best slopes of central Valais. Ideally situated south-facing terraced vineyards with dry schist limestone soil result in a remarkable minerality of the wines. The exceptional location of the Bonvin domains, cultivated according to integrated production techniques,  and the cellar equipped with modern production facilities explain the success of these wines, whose producer is so aptly named.

Awards received in various competitions and the title as Swiss Winery in 2014 bear witness to an extraordinary tradition of craftsmanship, refined over more than 150 vintages.


In 1992, the Maison Bonvin joined with Philippe Varone Vins to create Les Celliers de Champsec with the aim of developing synergies. Today, the two partners have intensified their cooperation by creating a joint sales team and the first Oenoparc in Switzerland below the spectacular terraced vineyards. The Celliers de Sion headed by David Héritier stand out as a privileged meeting point between customers and artisan wine producers.
