MesVignerons offers you 4 different choices to satisfy your needs and taste desires.
The White Box will highlight the cantons with white grape varieties, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chasselas in French-speaking Switzerland, Räuschling in Zurich, etc., by showing you these wines that combine character, finesse and friendliness for both novices and experienced visitors. If white wine is often enjoyed as an aperitif, think of pairing it with meat dishes, cheese or even with your fish.
The Red Box will offer you different typical or atypical grape varieties that you can taste as a preamble, as an accompaniment or at the end of a meal. We will make you taste several grape varieties that can go from traditional wines such as Pinot Noir or Gamay, but sometimes a small surprise in barrel or a blend could show the tip of its nose in your monthly box.
The Mix Box composed of white, red and rosé specialities depending on the month. This box is ideal for those who want to discover other varieties and wines more aromatic, sweet, powerful, extravagant or out of the ordinary. It will also sharpen your palate and increase your tasting panel. Let yourself be surprised by the fantasy of the Swiss winegrowers who vinify their precious nectars with emotion.
