STYLISTICS

The majority of Swiss Pinots are "Pinots de cuve" meaning they are not oaked.

"Pinots du cuve" are on the fresher, more fruity side. The wines are easy to drink and very enjoyable with friends, family and food.

The two regions of Graubünden/Grisons and Neuchâtel produce Burgundy style Pinots based on local terroir, climate, and winemaking techniques.
