The Donatsch family has owned the «Ochsen» in Malans for over 100 years. That's five Donatsch generations of wine
connoisseurs. The family-owned business philosophy is to produce true wines of outstanding quality, typical of their
The Donatsch family runs a wine-growing estate in the Bündner Herrschaft (Grisons) - one of the leading Swiss wine
regions - the wines of which belong to the best in Switzerland.
Heidi Donatsch runs the «Ochsen» wine bar and manages wine sales, while her husband Thomas concentrates solely
on the wine-growing estate. Thomas Donatsch, who is recognised as a pioneer of Swiss wines, started to raise the
quality of his wines to an international standard early in his life.
Inspired by Burgundy, he had already planted Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc in 1975, which, from a legal point of view,
was not allowed at that time. In Switzerland he was the first to press a sparkling wine according to the Champagne
method and to cultivate Cabernet Sauvignon (1983) in the region. Further, when it comes to pressing methods,
Thomas was the first in Switzerland to experiment with wooden barrels. In 1973 the late André Noblet, a fellow
winemaker from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti gave his friend, Thomas, three used «LaTâche» barrels, in which
the first «Spiger» was cultivated according to the classical Burgundy method. To achieve all of these innovations it
took courage, as well as oenological skills and the helpful exchange of information with other wine making friends all
over the world.
During his vocational training as a vintner and winemaker with several wine-growing estates in Australia, South
Africa, Bordeaux and Spain, Heidi and Thomas's eldest son Martin acquired many new ideas. After he returned home
to Malans, he successfully integrated this in depth knowledge with tried and tested methods. Martin is convinced
that the Bündner Herrschaft is amongst the best Pinot regions in the world and is sure that its potential is by no
means exhausted.
Martin Donatsch has won the 2010 competition for «Champion du Monde des Producteurs de Pinot Noir» – the world
champion among the pinot noir producers. The Mondial du Pinot Noir 2011 brought the confirmation: Martin was
«WORLD CHAMPION PINOT NOIR PRODUCER» for the second time in succession!
