Founded in 1987 at Sierre-Chippis by Nicolas Zufferey, with youthful energy as its only capital. The cellar has grown and a new building at the heart of the Bernunes vineyards has housed all the wine production since 1994. The vineyards of the estate of Bernunes are laid out on soil that originates from the Alps of Berne. The earth is characterized by a mixture of fine soil, and a local microclimate allows all the varieties produced on the estate to flourish. The modern cellar has recently been expanded to include a reception area with a breathtaking view of the protected forest of Finges.
