                            [GrapeCharacteristics] => Petite Arvine is a white grape variety grown mainly in Valais, Switzerland and Italys Valle dAosta. It is unclear exactly where the variety originated, and growers and officials from both regions claim it as their own. Petite Arvine wines are defined by their bracing acidity and grapefruit aromas, and often show a touch of salty minerality on the palate.
The grape has been cultivated in Valais for at least 500 years, although some researchers argue that it may have been brought to the area from Italy.

Following the Rhône River from its source in the Alps, the region has some of the most spectacular vineyards in the world. Situated on the north side of the valley, Chomoson sits on steeply sided vineyards with schist soils. With more sunshine hours than Provence and swept with gentle winds the vineyards are laid out like no other on earth with 5,137 ha owned by 22,000 across 80,000 different parcels, making Burgundy look positively uniform in comparison. The Favres farm 7 ha and lease a further 6 ha covering 78 different plots, primarily located around the village. Petite Arvine is the king here, producing wines of great focus and minerality with the Grande Année Saint Pierre only being produced in the best vintages.

John Favre first studied at the agricultural school of Chateauneuf in Valais. Next, he went to L’ecole Superieure de Changins, the best viticultural and oenology school in Switzerland.
Mike Favre took a slightly different route. He studied Economics before going on to study Oenology and Viticulture in the state’s engineering school. Then, he set off to the US where he lived and made wines for 7 years before returning to Switzerland and the family estate. Today Mike is Vice President of Vinofed, among other things.
Mike and John Favre represent the new generation of winemakers. Bold, forward-looking and passionate about their wines and vines, they are revolutionizing the industry by introducing and applying new techniques to viticulture and winemaking.

                    [Notes5] =>  The Rene Favre & Fils winery produces a diverse range of wines. Their white wine production consists mainly of Petite Arvine, Johannisberg (Sylvaner) and Fendant (Chasselas). Their red wine production, in turn, consists mainly of Pinot Noir, Gamay, Humagne Rouge, Merlot, Syrah, and Diolinoir.
All Favre wines are made in the estate, and all of them are fermented in stainless steel vats. Most of the whites never see oak, but all the reds do. The profiles of Favre wines are typical of the region, with the exception of a few blends which Mike and John have produced for a more international palate.
The wine-growing area of St.Pierre-de-Clages and Chamoson is the largest in Valais and home to around 30 different wine grape varieties. The soil in this area is mostly limestone. The vineyards are situated on the right bank of the Rhone River, and most of them are on gentle slopes. The unique location of the St.Pierre-de-Clages – Chamoson vineyards gives them a southern exposure that makes the proper maturation of wine grapes possible, and it is at the heart of this exceptionally located wine-growing region that you’ll find the Rene Favre & Fils Estate.

                    [Notes5] =>  The Rene Favre & Fils winery produces a diverse range of wines. Their white wine production consists mainly of Petite Arvine, Johannisberg (Sylvaner) and Fendant (Chasselas). Their red wine production, in turn, consists mainly of Pinot Noir, Gamay, Humagne Rouge, Merlot, Syrah, and Diolinoir.
All Favre wines are made in the estate, and all of them are fermented in stainless steel vats. Most of the whites never see oak, but all the reds do. The profiles of Favre wines are typical of the region, with the exception of a few blends which Mike and John have produced for a more international palate.
The wine-growing area of St.Pierre-de-Clages and Chamoson is the largest in Valais and home to around 30 different wine grape varieties. The soil in this area is mostly limestone. The vineyards are situated on the right bank of the Rhone River, and most of them are on gentle slopes. The unique location of the St.Pierre-de-Clages – Chamoson vineyards gives them a southern exposure that makes the proper maturation of wine grapes possible, and it is at the heart of this exceptionally located wine-growing region that you’ll find the Rene Favre & Fils Estate.

About this product +

With more sunshine hours than Provence and swept with gentle winds the vineyards are laid out like no other on earth with 5,137 ha owned by 22,000 across 80,000 different parcels, making Burgundy look positively uniform in comparison. The Favres farm 7 ha and lease a further 6 ha covering 78 different plots, primarily located around the village. Petite Arvine is the king here, producing wines of great focus and minerality with the Grande Année Saint Pierre only being produced in the best vintages.
