Provins – Cheers to Swiss Wine!

posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

We discovered a Swiss wine producer you must enjoy for yourself! Now is the best time, as they will be at Expovina this November (booth 213)…there’s even a chance to win a weekend getaway to their vineyard in Wallis! 

Grab a glass and let’s sniff, swirl & sip with Provins, the largest producer of Swiss Wines accounting for 10% of all of Switzerland’s wine production and 20% of the Wallis Region’s wine production, with harvesting history dating back to the 1920’s.

We recently discovered their diverse collection and are excited to share the Top Reasons we Love Provins…


Gold Medal Winner. In fact, they have won more national and international awards than any other wine cellar in Switzerland. Most recently our favorite Autumn event organizers, Expovina, awarded them the IWPZ 5 Gold Medals including “Best of Wallis” for their clos Corbassière.

The Selection. With over 120 wines to choose from, you can surely please every palette, but we’d suggest starting with the best wine of Wallis winner, clos Corbassière, or if you’re worried about dinner conversation getting stale, flaunt the bottle of Chandra Kurt, the journalist and wine author that created a limited line of wines for Provins. 

Changemaker. In the early 1900’s when wine sales were slumping, the first cooperative was created launching Provins and changing the wine making industry. We love bold players especially when they believe in teamwork!

A Royal Tasting. Grab your prince and make it a weekend getaway to their restaurant Castel d’Uvrier. Serving Provins wine complimented by gourmet dishes by Bruno Toppazzini (14 Gault & Millaut points 2017), it’s a foodies dinner dream come true.
