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, around 1630.

Heida Village and Europe's Highest Vineyard

Marveling at records – The pearl of the Alpine wines comes from Europe's highest vineyard. The vineyard terraces lie close to each other in rows on the southern slope, below the Heida village of Visperterminen. The Valais sun ripens the special grapes that yield a special wine.

The name of Cantina La Minerva is usually mentioned in the same breath as that of its versatile director, the oenologist Lorenzo Mina. He is active in various fields and is as successful in producing wine as he is as a painter.
