With the vision to modernize the Swiss wine culture, VIKARUS came to break the rules. Equipped with some of the best oenologists and winemakers of the region, only the finest grapes are selected and found inside the VIKARUS bottle.
Unbound to one specific winery, we have the freedom and flexibility to choose after our taste instead of forced inventory.
When glass gets blown, it naturally makes it round. To move away from it and create corners, every bottle needs to get hand-polished, which is the reason behind the complexity of the VIKARUS bottle.
Characterized by its edges and corners, once laid down horizontally, you will find the silhouette of the Lavaux wine fields within the distinctive design.
In the Greek mythology, Icarus is the son of the master craftsmanship Daedalus, the creator of the Labyrinth. After getting imprisoned too in this Labyrinth, Icarus and his father attempt to escape with the help of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax.
Before taking off, Icarus' father warns him to neither fly too low nor too high, so the sea's dampness would not clog his wings nor the sun's heat melts them.
Once escaped and enjoying the freedom of flying, Icarus gets overconfident, ignoring his father's instructions. When the wax in his wings melted he tumbled out of the sky and fell into the sea where he drowned, sparking the idiom "don't fly too close to the sun".
