Domaine Cornulus

Savièse, Central Valais

You are here

 
Two cousins, Stéphane Reynard and Dany Varone, run the Cornulus estate. They manage 35 acres (14 ha) spread over 250 terraced vineyards in the heart of Valais. These vineyards are uniquely situated in very steep and sunny locations, such as the great Clos of Corbassières on the slopes of Mount Orge near Sion. Forty wines are produced every year. Both winemakers believe that blending would undermine the authenticity of their wines. They cherish the peculiarities and characteristics of their many plots as they bring their own personality to each wine.
