Domaines Rouvinez is a family-run business founded in 1947 by Bernard Rouvinez, an independent winemaker, and then expanded and developed by his sons, Dominique and Jean-Bernard, both of whom are winegrowers and oenologists. The family tradition was assured with the entry into the company of Véronique Besson-Rouvinez as oenology and quality manager, Philippe Rouvinez as supervisor of commercial activities, and Frédéric Rouvinez as managing director.
From the beginning, the Rouvinez family have focused on producing top-quality wines, with a particular emphasis on the great specialities of Valais, such as Arvine and Cornalin. They have played a pioneering role in the creation of blended wines including Le Tourmentin, La Trémaille and Les Grains Nobles.
The Rouvinez family’s passion for excellence continued with its development of two grand crus from exceptional terroirs: Le Cœur de Domaine blanc and Le Cœur de Domaine rouge, both matured in 6000-litre Swiss oak casks.
Another four grands crus complete its range: the Marsanne, Petite Arvine, and Syrah wines in the Sierre Grand Cru series, and the Cornalin Leytron Grand Cru. These four wines were developed in collaboration with Didier de Courten, the talented chef at Sierre’s Le Terminus restaurant. The term grand cru is a regional appellation granted exclusively to AOC wines that meet a demanding range of criteria.
These are exceptional wines, matured with passion and care.
