OLIVIER ROTEN WINES

A Swiss Wine Project

The Caves du Paradis winery and vineyards are located in the township of Sierre at the center of Switzerland’s Valais region. Winemaker Olivier Roten is the third generation in his family to produce wine in this mountainous area along the Rhone River. The Roten family’s vision has always been to preserve traditional grape varieties and to ensure that their wines reflect the unique alpine terroir in which they are grown. While implementing new techniques and approaches, Olivier remains true to the core family philosophy of using sustainable farming practices and intervening as little as possible in the winery. The winery has been in Organic conversion certification since 2019 . The winery produces a selection of wines, focusing on several of the region’s most important indigenous varieties grown in the high-elevation mountain valleys of the Valais region, the largest grape-growing region in Switzerland.
