Wein und Destillate

Wine, Destillate

High quality is meant to be a defining feature of Swiss wines, as a justification for their prices. This quality can only be achieved if all production steps from vine to bottle pass off optimally.
Distillates: The distiller’s skill begins with the fermentation of the must, and leads to a delicate brandy.
