for this region?

Fendant is the local name given to the white Chasselas varietal in the Valais canton of western Switzerland. Valais is the largest wine region in Switzerland, and Fendant runs a close second in terms of production here behind Pinot Noir. Fendant produces a white, dry, slightly fruity wine that is considered an ideal pairing for the regional specialties fondue and raclette.
