Anne-Dominique Zufferey

Sierre, Switzerland
Director of the Valais Wine Museum from 2000 to 2021

Anne-Do. Zufferey is a biologist by training. She was director for 20 years of the Musée du Vin du Valais. Within this framework, she developed interdisciplinary scientific research and directed several publications on the tangible and intangible heritage of the vine and wine in Valais.
Passionate about contemporary art, theater, jazz, and travel, she describes herself as curious about the world.


I trained as a biologist in Lausanne. After 10 years of teaching, I had the chance, in 2000, to take over the direction of the Valaisan Museum of Vine and Wine in Sierre and Salgesch. My work has been guided by the following objectives: to develop and encourage scientific research, to ensure that the knowledge that has emerged is transmitted and shared with the public, both winegrowers and the general public (through conferences, museum-school projects, publications), and to arouse the interest of winegrowers in history, tradition and the evolution of practices.

My interest in culture has led me to be a member of several associations and commissions: the Valais State Council for Culture, the Caves de Courten in Sierre, Bizz’art (association for contemporary art), the Junior Chamber of Commerce (JCI), the Rilke festival.
