Caves Orsat - Martigny

About the winery

Founded in Martigny by Alphonse Orsat in 1874, Caves Orsat works closely with thousands of small Valais winegrowers, offering them a cooperative structure rich in humanity and social values.

Each year, Caves Orsat buys the harvest of around 1100 suppliers, located between Salquenen and Martigny. Alphonse Orsat was a pioneer in various fields, for example by creating a pension fund for his employees, a rare social commitment at the time.

For almost 150 years, Caves Orsat has forged a link between vine and wine, creating an identity for a large part of the Valais region.

The fame of "Fendant 13 Etoiles", "Dôle Romaine" and "Pinot Noir Römerblut" was established over a century ago. These wines were joined by the prestigious "Primus Classicus" range in 1988. This range gives pride of place to native specialities such as Arvine, Cornalin and Humagne Rouge.

Caves Orsat moved from the center of Martigny to the city's southeastern outskirts.
In 1988, it became part of the Rouvinez family.
