Cave de Bovanche - Ardon

About the winery

The Bovanche cellar in Ardon is a family estate, and its current oenologist is Nicolas Jacquier, who represents the second generation.

The cellar's wines have won numerous prizes at the "Grand Prix des Vins Suisses", at international competitions and at the "Sélection des Vins du Valais".

Nicolas Jacquier is one of the rookies of 2022, nominated by the Gault & Millau jury. "It's a great accolade. As we are not young for very long, it is even more incredible to be nominated as one of the rookies of the year."
