Even the Romans loved the wine from the Bündner Herrschaft (Graubünden’s Rhine Valley). The sought-after, characteristic Pinot Noir, however, did not become endemic until the beginning of the 17th century.

The young mercenaries and farmers’ sons from Graubünden brought the Pinot Noir shoots from Burgundy to the Bündner Herrschaft, the most northern part of Graubünden, in around 1630. The clever “Bündner” inhabitants were quick to realize that the Pinot Noir vine thrived in the region’s special climate and on the slatey soil. Within seven years, ninety percent of the vines had been replaced by the Pinot Noir.
“Switzerland’s Burgundy” stretches along the Rhine from Bonaduz to Fläsch. The mild climate, the foehn wind and the lime-rich soil are ideal for the vines – and evidently perfect for the typical Pinot Noir vine.
