The multi-award-winning Cave du Rhodan winery in Salgesch has a wide range of varieties with outstanding Pinots. The Upper Valais has the best conditions for winegrowing. With an optimal 600 mm per year, precipitation is below the Swiss average and 2100 hours of sunshine per year. The vineyards are mostly terraced and enclosed with dry stone walls, and all sites are cultivated mainly by hand. The soils are mainly limestone, but there are also gneiss and granite soils. The aim in the cellar is to bring out the naturalness of the grape variety every year. Various wines are vinified with spontaneous fermentation.

Much attention has been given towards sustainability since 2007. The Mounir family of winemakers calls this agriculture that is suitable for their grandchildren. A key haracteristic of this is the safeguarding of excellent, healthy soil that will benefit future generations.
