The Charles Favre SA winery was founded in 1944 in Sion, in the heart ofthe Valais wine country. Hanny Favre took over the wineryin 1960; she was the first Valaisanne to be admitted to the association of vintners. In 1988, a global jury elected the passionate winemaker "Personality of the Year"" in the field of oenology. Today, her son Jean-Pierre has taken over the family business, investing heart and soul into his work. It is not surprising that the company has grown to become a model of Swiss viticulture.
