Recorded in 1313 in a notarial deed, the Registre d’Anniviers, Humagne Blanche is one of the oldest grape varieties in the Valais. Popular tradition attributes its origins to the Romans, and its particularly high iron content has earned it the nickname of “the wine of childbirth”. However, modern research has disproved both these claims. A variety found only in Valais, Humagne Blanche, which bears no relation to its namesake Humagne Rouge, almost disappeared during the 20th century due to its low productivity and susceptibility to vine pests.



Slow, gentle pressing, a single low-temperature fermentation and six months’ ageing in vats guarantee maximum fullness and roundness while retaining finesse and freshness of flavour.


Yellow with grey and green highlights.


The very powerful floral bouquet is characterised by a subtle blend of melon, citrus, pears, lime blossom and hazelnuts.


The vinosity combines with lovely acidity to give a mouth-watering wine with delicate notes of honey and dried fruit
ending on a long, fresh finish.

Gastronomic pairings

Ideal as an aperitif, Humagne Blanche goes well with fish, white meats and mountain cheeses.
