Cave de la Pierre - Venthône

About the winery

La Cave de la Pierre was founded in 1974 by Jacques Clavien. It is in the district of Pierre in the east of Venthône, a medieval winemaking village situated at 800 metres in altitude, on the right bank of the Rhone between Sierre and Crans-Montana.

At the beginning of 2015, after 40 vintages, the cellar was taken over by his son Samuel who benefited from a solid training in oenology, with the objective of continuing what had been achieved along the same lines and in the same spirit.

The cellar's focus on quality above all else is underlined by its use of “integrated production” (which respects the environment) throughout the vineyard. The 4.5 hectare family estate is home to eleven varied grape varieties, which are used to produce fifteen wines.

The timeless exterior (unchanged for 33 years) is the work of the painter and engraver Gérard de Palézieux. It is decorated in two colours, for white and red wines.
