The Sherpa wine
Sherpa Everest Wine reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 12th, 2021 with Dendi Sherpa. The new Sherpa Wine was baptised on top of Mount Everest.
With Dendi Sherpa it was also Pitsch, Kari and Patrick who stood on the top of Mount Everest in May 2008. This is where the idea of the Swiss Sherpa Foundation was born.👍🍷😊
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 one Swiss franc per bottle 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.
Domaines 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.
