2019 Schedule and Opening Hours

Harvest

 

From September 4 – November 24 

With climate change, it is increasingly difficult to predict when harvest will start and how long it will last. Thus, the domain is closed for all visits from September 4 – November 24. Thank you for your understanding.

During this crucial period, which begins with checking for optimal grape maturity and carries on through vinification (pressing, clarifying and putting into barrel), Marie-Thérèse dedicates her full attention to the vines and the 25 individual wines that she creates so that they are the best ambassadors for their vintage and their terroirs.

The team at Domain Chappaz is at your disposal for additional information.

2019 Schedule and Opening Hours

November 15 and 16 

 

Arvine en Capitale is the biennial event dedicated to arvine, the indigenous grape of Valais of which Fully is the birthplace. 

Organised by Fully Grand Cru Producers, this event occurs once every two years.

Marie-Thérèse particularly loves getting everything ready at the estate for Christmas. At winter’s threshold, she gives a warm welcome to her friends, clients, and visitors.

Holiday Closings

 

We will be closed for the holidays beginning December 20, 2019.

We will reopen for visits on Monday, January 6, 2020

In the meantime, all the members of Domain Chappaz wish you a very happy holiday and a joyous new year!

 

Order

 

You can find an order form in the “Bouteiller”*. In order to avoid any miscommunication, quantities are for the number of bottles desired. We also need to know if you prefer to have the wines shipped or if you would rather pick the bottles up at the estate. If the latter, we must know the exact date and timing of your arrival.

In general, our wines are ready from mid-May. Visiting before the end of June is the best time to be sure that quantities are still available. Please note however that Marie-Thérèse reserves the right to reduce order quantities in function of the number of bottles produced in a given year. 

Important information:

Given our limited space and for logistical reasons, we are unable to stock wines that have been ordered over a long period. Consequently, if you are unable to visit during our May-June opening period (wines available in November are excepted), we will need to mutually organise shipping and delivery. 

*   Fun fact – during the Middle Ages, ‘bouteiller’ was the title of the officer in charge of procuring wine for a royal court. He sometimes also had the role of cupbearer and would be called upon to serve the king during important occasions.
