Discover the wine tourism facilities in the canton de Vaud.
Lavaux, situated between Lausanne and Chillon, boasts a spectacular terraced landscape that overlooks Lake Geneva. Abundant sunshine is available thanks to the vines’ ideal exposure, reflected sun from the lake and sunshine stored in the terraced stone walls. The wines are well-structured and complex, characterised by notes of honey and toast and by their persistent finish.
Dézaley Grand Cru
The Dézaley wine area, located entirely within the district of Puidoux, is marked by abrupt slopes and stone walls that hug the hillside. Chasselas reigns supreme here, covering 90% of Dézaley’s surface area. The terraced vines’ exceptional exposure results in full-bodied wines with a remarkably long finish. These are complex, well- structured wines, with notes of almond and toast, ending with tea and honey notes.
Calamin Grand Cru
Calamin is nestled between the village of Epesses and Lake Geneva. Chasselas thrives on its distinctive soil, which gives the wine a rich aromatic palette, with notes of caramel and hints of chalk. Calamin wines are classy and dense: they are characteristically smooth on the palate, slightly sappy and bitter, which adds a touch of virility.
