About the Producer

 The Caves du Paradis in Sierre, Switzerland,

was founded by Alex Roten in 1959.

Today, Alex’s grandson, Olivier, runs the winery and oversees the family’s prime vineyard land in the prized areas of Miège, Sierre and Salgesch in the Valais, Switzerland’s most respected wine-growing region.

Among the twenty or so wines

produced at the Caves du Paradis are the exceptional Pinot Noir from Salgesch and the Cuvée Mélèze, a unique blend of white wines matured in larch wood barrels.

 

The family embraces innovation while at the

same time upholding local traditions and preserving the natural environment. Olivier Roten is in the midst of transferring all of the family’s vineyard lands to certified organic farming. His focus is on quality and ensuring that his family’s wines represent the purest expression of the unique Valaisan terroir.

I just couldn't resist highlighting this recipe that specifically suggests Avalanche Pinot Noir as a match. The stew is perfect for a cold winter's evening... whether you've been skiing or on the school run.
