    Martel WINES

    Gstaad Palace

    Being fascinated by high-quality wine also implies being in love with it. It is about the appreciation for the wine itself, the wine region and the vintner’s stories. In our hotel, this love for highest wine culture is conveyed by the wine specialist Martel, which is, like the Gstaad Palace, family-run for five generations.

    From Chablais to Chardonnay, from Nebbiolo to Napa – Martel stands for a wide range of wines, including top rarities like the ones from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Hence, for Martel, wine is not a good, it is artwork which they dedicate a lot of personal resources to, from selection to delivery to the Gstaad Palace. For decades Martel made strong friendships with its character vintners. They enhance the Martel-Team’s knowledge and passion. Thus, original producer bottling is self-evident and the base for an independent and unique range. Proudly, due to Martel, we are able to provide access to highest wine culture. At the same time our guests are provided the chance to experience entertaining wine stories and high-class wine relish.

    Not in love with wine, yet? No worries, the next magical wine evening will surely follow and convince you soon. Feel free to ask our restaurant staff.
