Founded in 1900, the family-owned Maison Varone has always followed the great developments in Swiss and Valais winegrowing.
At that time, it was the first winery to fill its quality wines into bottles instead of only using open containers. This ensured the commercial development of Varone wines in gastronomy and also with private customers in Switzerland and abroad.
Since the 1920’s, founder Frédéric Varone, anticipated market trends by creating strong brand names such as Fendant Soleil du Valais and Dôle Valéria.
In 1992, Maison Varone joined with Bonvin 1858 Les Domaines to create Les Celliers de Champsec with the aim of developing synergies and at the same time rationalising some redundant activities.
Today, Philippe Varone, Mayor of Sion, has passed on the management of his business to the Celliers de Sion led by David Héritier. Within this organisation, the two partners have intensified their cooperation by initiating a joint sales team and creating the first Oenoparc in Switzerland, below the spectacular terraced vineyard. The Celliers de Sion stand out as a privileged meeting point between the customers and artisan wine producers.
A bright and untroubled future is surely awaiting the Varone family!
