Rimuss – a traditional Swiss brand that connects people. Since 1954.
For generations, Rimuss has accompanied families in Switzerland, creating shared moments of joy at festive occasions such as birthdays, Christmas and Easter. From its origins as a family-made champagne, the brand has developed into a popular aperitif drink for every generation and every occasion.
The Rimuss story continues, with our brand values of ‘COURAGE, STYLE, ENJOYMENT OF LIFE and RESPECT’ playing a central role. One thing is certain: Rimuss belongs at every aperitif and connects people with non-alcoholic joie de vivre.
Every generation can find an alternative to alcohol with Rimuss. In order to provide this, we look ahead and are open to current trends and challenges. With new ideas and determination, we overcome resistance and connect people again and again – because with Rimuss, everyone really can raise a glass.
Those who want to enjoy, celebrate and toast in style can also do so alcohol-free thanks to Rimuss. We are constantly developing our grape juice creations, cultivating our image and confidently remaining true to our promise: Rimuss is a high-quality non-alcoholic alternative and an enrichment for every occasion.
With Rimuss, young and old can experience carefree, happy and enjoyable moments. To keep it that way, we develop and maintain our ‘aperitif culture’ with ideas, tips and recipes for every occasion. Whether it’s a birthday party, a formal business reception or a simple aperitif with friends, Rimuss connects the generations with joie de vivre.
Rimuss stands for conscious enjoyment and an honest, sparkling taste experience. We use only the best ingredients and process them exclusively in Switzerland under the highest quality criteria. The basis for every Rimuss is natural grape juice.
Almost 60 years of milestone after milestone.
The Rimuss story is full of exciting highlights. Perhaps one or two of the important milestones in our timeline will also bring back fond memories for you.
“Rimuss & Strada Wein AG is one of the leading producers of grape juice and wine specialities in Switzerland. Our mission is to give consumers pleasure and enjoyment at different stages of their life and to connect generations by sharing a toast.”
New owners, traditional quality principles.
“At the end of 2017, the Davaz family took over the Rimuss- und Weinkellerei Rahm AG. We come from Fläsch and are winemakers with heart and soul. Since the beginning of 2019, the traditional winery has been operating under the new name ‘Rimuss & Strada Wein AG’.
For us as a winegrowing family, the wine experience (with and without alcohol) is at the centre of our work. Since 1972, we have developed from a winery into a specialist in wine, sparkling wine and grape juice.
With pleasure in our craft, a lot of passion and a spirit of innovation, we consistently focus on the highest quality, from our own viticulture to vinification and the wine trade.”

We live these values – as a family and as a company.
We put our faith in people and think of the next generation.
Proximity to production is the key to top quality.
BEING OPEN TO NEW THINGS
We are open to new things and encourage innovation.
Nature is close to our hearts and we act sustainably.
We are service-minded and put our customers at the centre of what we do.
A HISTORY WITH MANY STORIES.
Transformation into ‘Rimuss & Strada Wein AG’ with the brands ‘Rimuss’ for non-alcoholic, sparkling grape juices and ‘Strada’ for wines and sparkling wines.
Takeover of Rimuss- und Weinkellerei Rahm AG by the Davaz winegrowing family from Fläsch.
Conversion of the general partnership into Rimuss- und Weinkellerei Rahm AG.
New construction of the wine press building with modern grape reception, gentle presses and an air-conditioned fermentation and storage cellar.
The sons Emil and Robert take over the company.
The local Hallauer is sold for the first time under the brand name ‘Graf von Spiegelberg’.
Jakob Rahm is the first in Hallau to cultivate grafted vines resistant to phylloxera and to introduce wire traction systems in his vineyard.
Grape juice: the true all-rounder.
Grape juice is pure nature: pure fruit juice with no added sugar, colourings or preservatives. Hardly any other drink has as much richness and harmony of taste as grape juice.
Fountain of youth
Grape juice protects and strengthens the digestive organs, especially the liver, kidneys and glands. The many trace elements trigger important chemical reactions in the body, which in turn strengthen the immune system.
Minerals and vitamins
In addition to vitamins B and C, grape juice also contains numerous minerals such as sodium, potassium and magnesium, as well as valuable polyphenols. Grape juice thus provides the body with antioxidant support, improves blood circulation, protects the blood vessels and keeps them elastic.
Rimuss – where the name comes from.
At the OLMA in 1954, the winery introduced a new, alcohol-free, sparkling product under the name ‘Ramouss’ (‘cream mousseux’). Before Christmas, however, the name had to be replaced because of the risk of confusion with a similar-sounding brand.
The search for a new name led to ‘Rimouss’, with ‘Ri’ referring to the grape varieties originally used (Riesling and Silvaner) and ‘mouss’ representing the pleasantly tingling bubbles.
Finally, the catchier and now widely known brand name ‘Rimuss’ emerged.
Excellent quality as standard.
Rimuss & Strada Wein AG pursues a strategy that focuses on enjoyment, quality and the customer experience. With clearly defined quality standards, the company produces the finest products, and does so at attractive prices.
Rimuss & Strada has decided to introduce a quality management system according to IFS requirements. IFS stands for International Featured Standards and is one of the most important certification systems in the food industry.
The standard primarily aims to guarantee food safety and quality, but also helps to optimise our own processes. In this way, the standard helps us to keep our promise of quality and to achieve the best possible price-performance ratio.
Climate protection is very close to our hearts at Rimuss & Strada Wein AG. For this reason, the company has been committed to sustainable climate protection since the 1980’s.
As early as 1985, a hot water solar system was installed on the roof of the production facility to use solar energy and save heating oil.
Since 2016, the company has participated in a voluntary climate protection and energy efficiency programme run by the Swiss government.
Various internal projects are currently underway with the aim of using renewable energies. In addition, all of our business activities are analysed and evaluated on the basis of ISO standard 26000 in order to make improvements across the entire value chain. One example is our commitment to sustainable agriculture with regard to organic farming and IP Suisse-certified production.
Hallo from Hallau.
Hallau is a picturesque village surrounded by vineyards in Schaffhausen’s Blauburgunderland. This is also where our work originated from 1945 onwards.
Founder Jakob Rahm-Huber, a true pioneer, laid the foundation of the business as early as 1928 by planting Hallau vineyards with hardy vines. Over the decades, this developed into a production company for wine and grape juice of national importance.
The exchange and relationship with local grape growers and the surrounding Blauburgunderland has always been important to us. They supply us with high-quality grape juices, just like their colleagues in the Zürcher Weinland and Bündner Herrschaft.
The best raw materials enable us to keep our promise of quality.
