  • About

Amigne, rare Swiss white grape variety and a speciality of Vétroz in the Valais used for dry, semi-dried on the vine, and sweet wines. dna profiling has established that Amigne is a likely grandchild of petit meslier, an almost extinct variety of Champagne. The wine produced is either a powerful dry white with distinctive linden aromas or a sweet (see flétri) wine with flavours of citrus fruits and bitter almonds.
