Lot #25: A Taste Into the Most Distinguished Swiss Wine
A Taste Into the Most Distinguished Swiss Wine
Switzerland’s winegrowing heritage resonates with the diversity seen through its four national languages, variety in landscapes, climate regions, and customs. Over 250 grape varietals can be found growing on the 15,000 hectares of vineyards owned by 1,500 producers throughout Switzerland, a concentration of genetic diversity that is amongst the highest in the world. The excellence of Swiss wine is unbeknownst to many mainly due to the rarity of its exportation, and the people of Switzerland consume so much wine (about 38 bottles per person each year) that what is produced is not enough.
For over 400 years, Domaine du Centaure has served its community and remained a major destination for any true wine lover in Switzerland. In fact, they played a major role in the commercialization of Swiss wine, being one of the first to put wine in bottles rather than serving from barrels. The winery stands proudly on the hillside of Dardagny overlooking the Chateau.
Introducing this exquisite auction lot from Domaine Dardagny, a Handmade Wooden Wine Box Gift Basket that encapsulates the essence of Swiss indulgence and sophistication. This beautifully crafted wine box is a treasure trove of delights, carefully curated to provide an unforgettable experience.
Inside this exceptional gift basket, you will discover three bottles of specialty Swiss wines, carefully selected to showcase the rich and diverse flavors of the region. Each bottle represents the culmination of centuries-old winemaking traditions, a testament to the mastery of Swiss vintners.
Accompanying the wines are delectable Swiss chocolates, a symphony of flavors that will transport you to the land of Alpine splendor. As a testament to their commitment to celebrating local artisans, Domaine Dardagny has also included a gift card to a local Swiss winemaker.
To enhance your wine-tasting experience, we have included a Swiss wine key, a quintessential tool for unlocking the hidden nuances of these exceptional bottles. With its elegant design and precise craftsmanship, this wine key embodies the attention to detail and passion for quality that defines Swiss craftsmanship.
To complete this extraordinary ensemble, the two additional wines will be Domaine Denis Mercier Humagne Rouge and Domaine Marie-Thérese Chappaz Petite Arvine. These are two heritage wines of Switzerland and two of the most decorated winemakers in the country. Marie-Thérese is considered a pioneer and pillar of women in wine.
