Obrist YOLO Gamme Vins Suisse

Obrist YOLO is a trendy line of Swiss wines that goes with the times: uncomplicated and unconventional. YOLO stands for “You Only Live Once!” And because we only live once, it would be a pity to miss out on the variety of wines from our beautiful, beloved Vaud. With Obrist YOLO you surf into a colorful world, you fly to the stars and dance with the flavors. YOLO is a wine for all occasions: to enjoy with friends, in all simplicity, to share the good things of life and give character to your aperitifs and gourmet meals.

As trendy as Obrist YOLO is, let’s go back in time: wine is one of the oldest foods that man has created himself (even before bread!). Wine was already served at the times of Jesus Christ and has accompanied the development of mankind through the millennia without getting a single wrinkle! Its outstanding feature is that it adapts to all budgets and social classes. So what would be more natural than to bring it into harmony with the spirit of our times? YOLO, the abbreviation for “You Only Live Once”, is the apotheosis of a new generation of consumers, one that favors a “chill-out” lifestyle.

The assemblage Doral & Pinot Gris for the YOLO Blanc embodies, with its minerality and purity, a fresh Switzerland, which is nevertheless anchored in the terroir of our ancestors. Freshness and crunchy fruit build the essence of YOLO Appassionato, a bold mix of Gamay, Gamaret and Garanoir. YOLO Rouge makes a strong impression thanks to the alliance of Merlot and Galotta, with fruit, spiciness and strength interacting perfectly. Quite like in ancient Rome, it is vinified in amphorae. In the YOLO wines, a subtle balance of ancient methods and those of Generation Y leads to a unique and timeless blend!
