26 October 2021 | One day, Time will prove you right...

Everything happens in the end! After years of hard work orchestrated by his former collaborator Marie Parvex, Le Temps seems to be back on the road to neutrality. The title of the following article, from which we have the pleasure of providing you with significant extracts, bears witness to this. Perhaps it will give ideas of real journalism to the NouvellisteMs Parvex's new employer...

Is the Valais wine world turning against Dominique Giroud?

A decision by the Public Prosecutor's Office has levelled serious accusations at the Valais vine and wine association, reports the daily newspaper from the far end of the lake. For the winegrower's camp, "the masks are coming off". The association, for its part, is increasingly sceptical of the canton's justice system, to the point of calling for the prosecutor in charge of the case to be recused [...].

In her position, the magistrate is not soft on the interprofession. She also pointed the finger at the attitude of Yvan Aymon, President of the IVV, who allegedly "heavily insisted" that a third party "send him one or more documents so that he could file them in the proceedings". She relied on exchanges between the two men, which she transcribed in her decision: "It's becoming urgent", "while I'm waiting to get the invoices, I just need one document to make one of his lieutenants crack; do you have a contract, a delivery note or an order?" or "it's really important that I get it quickly" [...].

For Rahel Brühwiler, the magistrate, "this evidence is indicative of the IVV's attitude in these proceedings" [...] The Valais Public Prosecutor himself called them to order in a very curt manner, stating that their "attitude" should be "qualified as inappropriate". The members of
IVV should know: their leaders are making a mockery of our institutions".

Dominique Giroud

I'm facing a media storm. I've been wrongly accused of tampering with my wines to make money. Journalists have overdramatised and criticised without any nuance. In so doing, they have tarnished and perhaps ruined forever my reputation as an oenologist. Faced with these accusations, I have decided to publish my version of events on this website.

Readers will be the judge.
