It all began in early September, near the town of Sion, in the Fin Bec vineyard. It was 7am when students from the International Bachelor section began the harvest, the first step towards the creation of Vatel’s wine.
A visit to the winery resulted in the discovery of the different processes of winemakeing. The students finished their day with a tasting of grape varieties that will lead to the two Vatel wines to come: a red and a white blend.
Before bottling in April, students also had to create two labels to dress the bottles. In addition to giving students the opportunities to better understand the process of developing a wine, this project will also allow them to offer Vatel restaurant customers the fruit of their labor.
We hope to see you in April for tasting our first bottles!
