Weingut Fromm, Malans

A family history for 4 generations


Even my great-grandfather Bartholomäus Fromm produced wine from our vineyards. In 1912, the "Schöpfiwingert Pino Noir" was awarded gold for the first time at a gastronomic trade fair. In the meantime, a lot has changed - only the vines have remained. I took over the management of our winery at the young age of 18. Founding a family and longing for the wide world prompted Ruth and me in 1991 with a lot of enthusiasm to build a second winery in New Zealand stay. Since then, I have been a wine hiker in two worlds. Paradoxically, New Zealand has opened my eyes to Burgundy. The contacts with Burgundy winegrowers and the experience with a Henry Jayer wine have finally shaken me up. At the age of 55, I have now decided to devote myself entirely to the Swiss business in Malans again. I sold the LaStrada winery in Marlborough, New Zealand in 2007. About my favorite vineyard Clayvin Vineyard, which I kept, I did not completely break the barriers to one of the most beautiful islands in the world. The Malanser winery is with 4.5 ha a medium-sized family business. The main part is still the noble plant, the Pinot Noir vine.
