Walliser Wine

Walliser Wine

The wines of the Wallis (Valais in French) are some of Switzerland's best. The climate of this region is unique and varied, with the famous ski resorts of Zermatt, Verbier and Saas Fee receiving hefty precipitation, while towns like Brig, Sion, and Sierre, deep in the Rhône Valley, have hot summers and a dry terroir. This climate favours wine production, and here they make the most of any canton in the country. Although they mainly produce Pinot Noir, Chasselas, and Gamay grapes, there are a number of grape varieties and blends that are unique to the Wallis. 

Berner Rose

Berner Rose

It's easy to first be skeptical of this tomato, especially in the supermarket, as she often looks paler and almost pink, even underripe, in comparison to her scarlet neighbours. However, her tender, delicate skin holds tart, meaty innards, bursting with flavour.
