The winery Jean-René Germanier - Vins du Valais is located in the municipality of Bellavaud-Vétroz in the Swiss canton of Valais. It was founded in 1896 by Urbain Germanier (1873-1944). His son Francis (1909-1994) distilled a brandy made from Williams pears for the first time in Switzerland in 1945, thus the speciality of the house "Bon Père William" was born. Today, the winery is managed by Jean-René Germanier, who is assisted as an oenologist by his nephew Gilles Besse. The vineyards comprise 11 hectares of own vineyards, from another 40 hectares grapes are purchased. The varieties represented are Amigne, Chasselas, Gamay, Diolonier, Ermitage (Marsanne), Humagne Rouge (Cornalin), Petite Arvine, Pinot Noir and Syrah. The wines are produced in the four lines Grand Cru, Classique, Reserve and Gally. The flagships of the house are the "Syrah Cayas", the noble sweet "Mitis" from the autochthonous Amigne variety fermented in barrique and the red wine cuvée "Gally Assemblage" from Gamay and Diolonier. The product range also includes the traditional Valais wines Fendant (white wine from Chasselas) and Dôle (red wine from Pinot Noir and Gamay and light as "Blanche").
