History

The Maison Imesch was founded in 1898 by Léopold Imesch and his wife Marie de Chastonay. Their son continued the business until he passed it on to his daughter Marie-Helène who then acted as president of the company for over 30 years. The maison’s history was intimately linked with Martigny, the City of Sun. The sun as the city’s coat of arms decorates the label of the Soleil d’Or range. The domains of this enterprise are exclusively located in this region, a central part of the Rhone plain. They consist of ancient vines of which some are older than 50 years and produce a grape quality way above average.

The Maison Imesch moved in 2009. Since its foundation it had been located in the vicinity of the Sierre railway station, now it inaugurated its new vine production facility at the western end of the city.

Vineyards

The Sierre region profits from such a favourable climate that the Romans had in their days called the city “Sirrum Amoenum” (Pleasant Sierre). Later on it was called the City of the Sun: no other place in Switzerland benefits from more sunshine. The Sierre region is also characterised by a plain full of small lakes and rocky hills. On the right banks of the river Rhone the hillside extends across gentle slopes where the vine has found a favourite terrain.

The Maison Imesch extended its vineyards across the whole Sierre region always favouring the best orientations. At the west of the city, two extraordinary exist: 1) Mangold, that allows the Cornalin to prosper and 2) Pissiour, where the Petite Arvine has found an exceptional terroir.
The Humagne Rouge feels perfectly at home at the Domaine d’Orgéval near St. Léonard.

The Domaine de Darnona in Venthône produces a fabulous Pinot Noir. The Petite Arvine acquired is noble reputation as the grapes of Maison Rouge, in Sierre itself.
