Chèrouche - Ayent

About the winery

From 2010, Andrea Grossmann and Marc Balzan found their first plots of vines: the Chèrouche domain was born. Andrea drew the "clé à guillon", the key of the cellar master, with which opens the tasting tap, as the company logo.

The vineyard is made up of 8 plots, mostly facing south-east, all located in Ayent on 1.3 hectares, between 600 and 850 meters above sea level. The soils are composed of schist, clay and quartz. Their grape varieties include: Chasselas, Arvine, Chardonnay, Amigne, Savagnin, Pinot Noir, Diolinoir, Syrah and Gamay.

Their viticulture is organic. Fertilizers and irrigation are prohibited. All the work in the vineyards are done manually (topography obliges). Slopes can reach 38 degrees!

Sulfur and copper dioxide and various herbal teas (wormwood, nettle, yarrow, dandelion, horsetail and also goat whey) are used when necessary. The movements of the moon are observed precisely at these times.
