Wines from the Bernese Jura
"The professionals of the region have been working passionately for years, constantly improving the quality of their wines. There’s a wide variety of vines and the wine-producing process used creates flavours that are both delicious and surprising. We were invited to a birthday party and the drinks were served in a wine cellar where the proprietor shared his love for vines and wine with us. The atmosphere was obviously celebratory and the location perfect. A great idea to share or offer as a gift."
The culture of wine growing at the shores of Lake Biel has had a long tradition, in fact one of more than a thousand years. The stony slopes plunging towards the waters present ideal conditions and the wine growing families cultivate around 40 different grape varieties there. Most of the wines are sold directly by the producers, considering the small size of the lots. The Biennese wines are therefore rather scarce, but renowned for their quality.
