La Colline de Daval, the complete diversification of a family wine estate

The Colline de Daval is a remarkable wine estate nestled in the heart of the Swiss Alps in Sierre, Valais. Our vineyard has been passionately cultivating the terroir for five generations. We are proud to offer an immersive experience in the heart of our terroir, with a unique experience of spending a night in the middle of the vineyard at the Castel de Daval.

The Castel de Daval majestically overlooks the Sierre plain from its elevated position within our vineyard. It offers an integral experience that combines wine tasting, a night’s stay in the heart of the Valais vineyard in a romantic castle with five guest rooms, and a breakfast buffet featuring local products from our production and other Valais producers. Each of our rooms is named after a grape variety, creating a unique connection between our guests and the wines they can discover during their stay. One of the unique experiences we offer is an Escape Room in our barrel cellar. This immersive game is a fun and engaging way to learn more about our winemaking process and the history of the Colline de Daval. It’s a great way to combine entertainment and education for our visitors.

Our vineyard spans 6 hectares between Sierre and Chamoson, and we also cultivate 30 hectares of fruit trees (apple, pear, and apricot) and 3 hectares of asparagus. Our wines, representative of this region, draw their beautiful minerality from the limestone terroirs. Sierre is the sunniest city in Switzerland. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Sierre offers a unique microclimate that contributes to the quality and richness of our wines. We are proud to announce that our vineyard is currently undergoing a federal organic conversion. Starting from the 2022 vintage, our wines are certified organic by Bio Inspecta. This transition reflects our commitment to sustainable viticulture and our respect for the natural environment.

We are deeply committed to sharing our knowledge and the richness of our products by offering unique wine tourism experiences. We have been recognized for our efforts in promoting wine tourism, having won the “Architecture and Landscape” award at the Best of Wine Tourism in Switzerland in 2019, the “Honor Award” in 2021, and once again the “Architecture and Landscape” award in 2024. We were also honoured to receive the People’s Choice Award in the architecture and landscape category.

We invite you to discover our terroir products and treat yourself to a romantic getaway in a castle in the heart of our vineyards in Sierre, where you can enjoy our award-winning wines, stay in a room named after a grape variety and learn about our ongoing transition to organic viticulture. All this, while basking in the sunshine of Sierre, the sunniest city in Switzerland. We look forward to welcoming you to the Colline de Daval, where the passion for the terroir meets the charm of Swiss hospitality. Enjoy our special offers for an unforgettable stay at the Colline de Daval.
