An adventure started
in 1991 in Penthaz...
Alfavin.ch was born from a passion cultivated and shared within our family for many years.
Nothing is better than when passion drives us. Wine is a product of nature, cultivated by passionate artisans, to be shared and enjoyed with family, friends and valued business clients.
As you may have often noted, a good bottle is rarely drunk alone. In a world that is becoming increasingly individualistic, good wine plays an even greater role in social relations ... it may be a sensory pleasure, aesthetic pleasure and intellectual pleasure.
Our friends, the producers, have been a source of inspiration and motivation for us in developing this online sales website. For many years we have developed special relationships and trust with them. Wine producers are unpretentious, authentic, loyal and, most of all, passionate about their craft. Every moment spent in their company, in their area or elsewhere, becomes an unforgettable experience of sharing. Ask them about their own history or that of their area and there is always something to learn about life.
The name "alfavin" embodies our philosophy about wine. The word alfa, a term of Greek origin (it is spelt with a "ph" or an "f"), evokes the best quality. "Vin" is simply the French word for wine. For us this name signifies a dimension and a specific commitment. It symbolises what we want to offer our family, our friends and our customers ... only the best.
We seek to provide a superior wine experience for our passionate customers while supporting our equally passionate wine makers with an impeccable service. All of this for a competitive price but with the comfort of delivery to your home or office or directly to your clients.
Through this site, we hope to communicate warmly with you and to fully share our passion for great wines.
