For the Altitude Wines project, wines were placed at 6 different mountain stations in Zermatt and exposed to the harsh weather conditions of the Swiss Eastern Alps for a whole year. Different altitudes and climatic conditions influence the maturing of the wines in a unique way.

In preparation for the experiment, the ideal filling height of the bottles was determined in painstaking detail work to ensure that the bottles will not burst, even when it is very cold. All bottles are also packed in opaque film to protect them from UV radiation.

Perhaps you have already found one of the boxes and discovered this page via the QR code attached to it. You can watch Altitude Wines mature at the following locations (alternatively we will keep you updated on our Instagram):
