Varen – the home of Pfyfoltru wine
The wine-growing village with its 650 inhabitants on the Pfynwald plateau committed itself to organic wine growing a decade ago.
Pfyfoltru wines " a dialect term for butterfly " stand for nature and the environment, health and well-being, and for the rating "excellent" by an acknowledged wine tasting committee.
Discover the unique variety of nature on a hike along the Bisse de Varone or the cultural trail Dala-Raspille. Visit one of the wine cellars in Varen and become firm friends with the vintner. He will gladly philosophise about organic wine growing and the refinement of the Varner wines..
