About this wine

Redefining the realm of possibility - this was our aspiration in creating TRES. The crown of our quality viticulture areas in Kurtatsch is the warm and steep site "Brenntal".

Thanks to the great day/night temperature swings and ideal soils for Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties, an unparalleled alpine-mediterranean cuvée was created. In the years of best growing conditions, the three oldest and best tiny lots of our three most important varieties are harvested and vinified under the lowest yields. We then give the wine all the time it needs in the barrel and in the bottle to reach its optimal drinking maturity. Three values, symbolized by our three cypresses and the best of three grape varieties, united in a singular wine: TRES.
