Resi AOC Valais
The Rèze is an ancient indigenous plant that has now become a bit of a rarity. It is considered a par excellence high-Alpine grape variety. Around 1920, almost all plants in Valais fell victim to the American phylloxera pest which means that this scarcely produced grape variety can now be found in just a handful of plots. Today, only 1.5 hectares of this variety are cultivated in Valais.
