This rare grape variety grows only in Switzerland and was first mentioned in 1686. Almost all of the vineyards are located around the Valais village of Vétroz, about a ten-minute drive west of Sion. Although there are now dry Amigne varieties, the grape variety comes to the fore in sweet wines. Intense fruit flavors are often complemented by light wood barrel notes and supported by a refreshing acidity. Also look out for “flétrie” varieties, where the grapes are left on the vine a little longer than usual and concentrated due to loss of liquid. Serve Amgne dessert wines well chilled, preferably straight from the refrigerator.

Moscato d’Asti

Welcome to Piedmont, home of the popular sparkling wines Asti DOCG and Moscato d’Asti DOCG. Here, a refreshing and often only slightly sparkling (frizzante) sparkling wine is made from the Muscat grape variety, which typically has flavors of stone fruit such as orange blossom and peach. While Asti DOCG also allows for dry versions, Moscato d’Asti DOCG must be sweet. This makes it an ideal noodle companion. Another feature of this sparkling wine is that its alcohol content is relatively low at 4.5 to 6.5 percent. Fruity wines sell for around ten francs per 0.75 liter bottle. Don’t forget to serve it chilled, fresh from the ice bucket.



Anyone who uses this Sicilian dessert wine specialty solely for cooking will be left without exciting wine combinations. One of them is with noodles, which goes well with walnut Marsala dessert wines. While small entry-level bottles of Marsala can be found at specialist retailers for under ten francs, there are also more complex versions with longer maturation times that can exceed the 100 franc mark. Classic sweet Marsala, like Madeira and Sherry, is mixed with added alcohol, making it between 17 and 20 percent by volume. As with Amigne and Moscato d’Asti, the same goes for Marsala: Be sure to serve it cold.
