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.
Wine & Food Matching Ideas
Wild mushroom risotto
Try it with
Duck confit paramentier
Admittedly this is a classic dish from the Medoc, where the chef lives and rightly suggests to pair with a Bordeaux. However, duck and Pinot Noir are an eternal match and this fine Swiss example is so rich in flavour, softly textured, with a balanced freshness that it needs a hearty yet refined recipe such as Mimi's.
