With the vision to modernise the Swiss wine culture, VIKARUS breaks 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 based on our taste instead of forced inventory
When glass gets blown, it naturally forms a round shape. To move away from this and create corners, every bottle needs to get hand-polished, which is the reason behind the complexity and elegance of the VIKARUS bottle.
Characterised by its edges and corners, once laid down horizontally, you will find the silhouette of the Lavaux wine fields within the distinctive design.
In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of the craftsman Daedalus. After getting imprisoned in Daedalus's Labyrinth, the pair attempted to escape with wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Before taking off, Icarus' father warned him to neither fly too low nor too high, so the sea's dampness would not clog his wings nor the sun's heat melt them. However, Icarus became overconfident and 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".
This story incorporates the morals and values which are the core of Vikarus. Icarus was the first human to reach the skies, and in doing so he laid down the foundations which would propel our civilization to look up, look forward, and to excel in what we do. Where there is an opportunity to fly, you must risk falling too.
