Marie-Thérèse would be delighted to welcome you at the estate to taste the latest vintage – ruby and golden-coloured wines that explode with flavour in the glass. Welcome to 39 chemin de Liaudise!
Spring is the only time of year when it is possible to taste all of our wines. A full tasting lasts approximately 2 hours.
The rest of the year, it is our pleasure to welcome you:
Wine sales by appointment
Monday to Friday, 8:00 am – 12:00pm and 1:30pm – 5:00pm
Sales are in function of those wines that are available
From September 4 – November 24
With climate change, it is increasingly difficult to predict when harvest will start and how long it will last. Thus, the domain is closed for all visits from September 4 – November 24. Thank you for your understanding.
During this crucial period, which begins with checking for optimal grape maturity and carries on through vinification (pressing, clarifying and putting into barrel), Marie-Thérèse dedicates her full attention to the vines and the 25 individual wines that she creates so that they are the best ambassadors for their vintage and their terroirs.
The team at Domain Chappaz is at your disposal for additional information.
From 10:00am – 5:00pm
November 15 and 16
Arvine en Capitale is the biennial event dedicated to arvine, the indigenous grape of Valais of which Fully is the birthplace.
Organised by Fully Grand Cru Producers, this event occurs once every two years.
From 10:00am – 5:00pm
by appointment only on the following dates:
November 30 – December 2
December 7 – 9
December 14 – 16
Marie-Thérèse particularly loves getting everything ready at the estate for Christmas. At winter’s threshold, she gives a warm welcome to her friends, clients, and visitors.
Wine and cheese pairings are a passion and for the 2019 edition, guests will have the pleasure of discovering Jacques Duttweiler’s cheeses. Click here to see last year’s Wine and cheese pairings (in French).
We will be closed for the holidays beginning December 20, 2019.
We will reopen for visits on Monday, January 6, 2020.
In the meantime, all the members of Domain Chappaz wish you a very happy holiday and a joyous new year!
You can find an order form in the “Bouteiller”*. In order to avoid any miscommunication, quantities are for the number of bottles desired. We also need to know if you prefer to have the wines shipped or if you would rather pick the bottles up at the estate. If the latter, we must know the exact date and timing of your arrival.
In general, our wines are ready from mid-May. Visiting before the end of June is the best time to be sure that quantities are still available. Please note however that Marie-Thérèse reserves the right to reduce order quantities in function of the number of bottles produced in a given year.
Given our limited space and for logistical reasons, we are unable to stock wines that have been ordered over a long period. Consequently, if you are unable to visit during our May-June opening period (wines available in November are excepted), we will need to mutually organise shipping and delivery.
* Fun fact – during the Middle Ages, ‘bouteiller’ was the title of the officer in charge of procuring wine for a royal court. He sometimes also had the role of cupbearer and would be called upon to serve the king during important occasions.
