Pinot Noir

A grape variety worshiped by winelovers

Pinot Noir is one of the best known and most appreciated wine grape varieties in the world, and one of the oldest. Originally from Burgundy (France) it belongs to the category of the "noble" or international varieties (so called for being widely spread in the world due to their excellent results in winemaking).

Pinot Noir is capable of reflecting terroir in an unequivocal way: every environment element (soil, temperatures, sun exposure...) will have its impact on the final result of the wine. For this reason, only the most experienced winegrowers manage to get the best out of it. Delicate and demanding in the vineyard, the results can be sublime when adequately managed. Possibly that is why it is rare to see it blended with other varieties, being more common in mono varietals.

In addition to its undeniable quality, its versatility should also be highlighted. Pinot Noir light red berries produce light red wines, but also excellent white wines, rosés and sparkling wines. A range of possibilities that we invite you to discover through our stories and our winemakers.

Don't know where to start?

These options are both sure values. Two top-class Pinot Noir to properly discover this popular variety... and probably fall in love with it.

Pinot Noir red wines worth tasting

Pinot Noir red wines tend to be light both in colour and alcohol volume, as well as complex and delicate, which makes them suitable for a wide range of occasions.

Pinot Noir... also in white

We call "blanc de noirs" a white wine made of red grapes. Not only are there very good Swiss white wines made from Pinot Noir, but Switzerland even has a special name for these: Federweiss.

Pinot Noir sparkling wines - Celebrate in style

Being the most-planted variety in Champagne, it is no surprise that Pinot Noir produces excellent sparkling wines also in other regions. These are some wonderful examples.

Pinot Noir is a very exigent variety. However, when terroir, annual climate, vineyard management and winemaking are in harmony, it produces the most complex and noblest red wines.

Pinot Noir rosé wines - Full of charm

When used for making rosé wines, Pinot Noir brings crispness and elegance. The Neuchâtel canton is even home of a unique historical dry rosé style, called "oeil-de-perdrix".
