Overview

Petite Arvine is a native of the Valais and is considered by many to be the finest variety of the region. Despite being a late-ripening variety and the dry and warm climate of the Valais, it is distinguished by its refreshing mineral acidity underpinning its citrus and orchard-fruit flavors. Despite attempts to cultivate this distinctive variety in the Northern Rhône and Italy, it has proved impossible to grow outside the Valais.
