Vigneron phare de l’appellation Givry, François Lumpp, par un travail patient depuis plus de vingt ans a contribué avec quelques autres vignerons à hausser cette appellation à un niveau prestigieux.
Aussi réputé pour ses blancs que pour ses rouges, François Lumpp élabore des vins avec une longueur et un gras exceptionnels. Ses vinifications sous-bois peu interventionnistes et des raisins en petites quantités mais parfaitement sains et mûrs lui permettent d’obtenir des résultats constants millésime après millésime, alliant gourmandise et tension propre au terroir.
The International experience

Rigour and patience
A tireless colleague for over 20 years, François is in charge of Logistics, Accounting and the fulfilment of orders. A talented bridge player, his rigor and his “eye” have often been lauded by our clients as well as our winemakers, with whom he has a close relationship.
However, his duties do not end there. A lover of wine as well, he can equally counsel you in your choice and assist you in making the right decision. The cellar holds no secrets for him and as a guide, he will light the way and help you find the road to the ideal bottle.
His favourite indulgences: Burgundy, the Rhone Valley and the wines of Bordeaux
For more than 40 years already, our company has been renowned in Switzerland for its importation of quality wines. We think of ourselves as the bridge between vintners and lovers of authentic and quality wines. 40 years of sharing with you the pleasure of new discoveries, of providing guidance and advice. Certainly, the great wines of which we are the exclusive agent, make up an important part, but they co-exist happily with more humble and lesser known appellations with inspiring stories and passionate people.The proven criteria for our research have not changed and the discipline to which we hold ourselves accountable in selecting our wines is even stricter. We accept only the highest caliber wines without concession. This same attention is given to entry level wines as well as to Grands Crus. Small (or very small) yields are privileged as well as wines which are the product of a viticulture which is respectful of both man and the environment. The most renowned tables in the country have given us their confidence and we hope you will as well.
We wish you excellent discoveries.
