Notre domaine “Pleine Lune” a été fondé en 1888, soit la plus ancienne cave familiale du Valais.
The vineyard benefits from an exceptional location alongside St-Pierre-de-Clages’ famous church, in the shadow of the octagonal bell tower.
Elle est dirigée aujourd’hui par Christian Crittin et secondé par son fils Marc, qui l’a rejoint en 2023.
Being an independent winegrower is all about know-how.
There is the work in the vineyard, the harvest, the crucial stage of vinification and the essential direct contact with our customers.
For over a hundred years, our philosophy has been to offer our customers an exceptional high quality product that respects the environment.
Year after year, a wine is the reflection of a terroir but also of the person who works it...
Hundred years later, in 1988, the 5th generation pick up the torch. After his wine and oenology studies, Christian took over the business with his wife Anne-Lise.
With great perseverance and dynamism, he gradually transformed the vines and adapted them to modern times. New grape varieties were cultivated such as white and reds, Petite Arvine, Humagne, Syrah and Merlot.
The future? It's already here! Marc Crittin works in the cellar and shares his passion every day which has been passed on through generations.
They are proud to carry on the craft of their ancestors.
Like a precious stone set in a rock setting, Chamoson stands out with its mineral environment: a unique landscape for a unique terroir. 90% of the vineyard is located on an alluvium cone.
Thanks to the Mediterranean climate of central Valais, our vines benefit from exceptional exposure of more than 2,500 hours of sunshine per year.
With a surface of seven hectares, our domain is located on 43 plots.
We cultivate 21 different grape varieties.
