Vins des Chevaliers

The wine production company in Salquenen (Salgesch) in the Swiss canton Wallis was founded in 1936 by the Mathier-Kuchler family. The name (knightly wines) is derived from the order of the Maltese (Johanniter), which had its headquarters in Salgesch from 1235 to 1655. A Maltese knight in parade uniform is emblazoned on the bottle labels. Grapes from a total of 40 hectares of vines are processed, of which ten hectares are owned. The wines are aged classic (no barrique). The focus of production is on red wines. There are the two wine lines "Chevaliers" and "Réserve des Chevaliers". In both become a Pinot Noir Dole (which contains at least 51% here 9% 5 Pinot Noir, rest Gamay) and one Oeil de perdrix (lightly pressed from Pinot Noir). Other wines are the traditional ones Fendant (Chasselas) and Johannisberg (Silvaner). Around 800,000 liters of wine are produced annually, eight percent of which are exported. There are also distillates such as apricot and Williams pear brandy Marc (Pomace brandy).
