Domaine de la Place du Château d’Ayent - Ayent

About the winery

The Pierre Dussex estate is located in the heart of Central Valais, on the right side of the Rhone at an altitude of around 900m, at a place called La Place, a site that is steeped in history, and where castles once stood.

This wine-growing estate has a tasting area, a place where time has stood still and tradition still endures : a Valais tasting cellar with stone walls.

It also has a gite close to the foot of the castles of Ayent. 15 minutes from Sion, 15 minutes from Montana and 10 minutes from Anzère!
