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 large 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.

This wine is very drinkable on its own, as an aperitif, but also proves very food friendly thanks to its bright freshness and nuanced fruit flavours. There's depth to it and a long finish. It should be paired with an equally fine dish such as this sea bass recipe - that is delicate but also aromatic and flavourful.
