Jean-René Germanier

Valais | Vétroz

Domaine Jean-René Germanier is located in Balavaud, a hamlet of the commune of Vétroz situated at the heart of the Valais and the Rhône Valley on the Swiss side of the Alps, famous for its warm, dry microclimate in the summer months. Out of love for the art of winemaking, quality is the highest priority. Gilles Besse and his uncle Jean-René Germanier are committed to quality and to producing wines with pronounced character, which for them means limiting their yields. They are constantly in search of innovative winemaking methods, extracting the true character of their terroirs, and seeking forgotten varieties that are awaiting rediscovery.

Jean-René Germanier 2022 Petite Arvine

Petite arvine is a variety that originated in the Valais region and has growing records dating back to 1602. Today, Germanier’s wine comes from glacial moraine and slate soils in the village of Vétroz. Vines are an average of 30 years old and farmed organically. To preserve the freshness of the wine it is produced in stainless steel and aged on its fine lees for 10 months prior to bottling.
