The Sherpa wine
Sherpa – a wine that connects people
The “Sherpa wine” tells the story of a particular Everest expedition. It is dedicated to the Sherpas of the Himalayas who accompany mountaineers to the roof of the world. The Swiss Sherpa Foundation is financed with two francs of the sales proceeds.
The Buddhist prayer flags play an important role in the life of the Sherpas and are found on nearly every mountain pass and summit in their home country. They flutter in the wind and transport the prayers (Mantras) and wishes to the sky.
Vins des Chervaliers has created a specific prayer flag for the wine etiquette of the Sherpa wine. In the four corner pictures there are recorded four impressive encounters from Patrick Z’Brun with the Sherpas which strongly impressed him and earn his gratitude.
The «Sherpa Rouge» is a red blend of Pinot Noir and Humagne Rouge. The Pinot grape lends him strength and robustness. The alpine type of grape Humagne Rouge with its soft tannins produces its fruity bouquet and lends the wine its character. The result is an expressive and harmonious wine.
