TRINK MAGAZINE - Driving Swiss wine by Britta Wiegelmann
The Donatschs were never conformists. Starting in the 1970s, Thomas Donatsch of Graubünden turned the Swiss wine landscape on its head with his illegal Chardonnay plantings and barrique experiments. In 2019, his son Martin broke the price record for Swiss wine with his Réserve Privée. Yet it hasn't always been easy. A conversation with Martin reveals a few of the reasons why Swiss wines remain an insider secret.
