‘Terres de Lavaux’ is a cooperative founded in 1906 by the wine producers in the Lutry area. Lutry is a small town situated on the outskirts of Lausanne, in the heart of the Lavaux wine making region, world renowned for its vines grown on terraces overlooking Lake Geneva.Its wine making capacity reaches roughly 150,000 bottles per year. Two thirds of the yield is Chasselas wine, characterised by it’s refined flavour, a subtle reminder of the rich earth found in the Lavaux region.

Lavaux AOC (appellation d’origine contrôlée) wine grade label covers the former Lutry and Villette wine labels. Wines which originate from other grape varieties, like the Riesling-Sylvaner (Muller-Thurgau), Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Viognier, constitute speciality wines and complete the range of white wines available. They are either processed alone or by blending, using a variety of grapes. The most cultivated red grapes produce Gamay and Pinot Noir wines, processed either alone or blended, for example with the new Gamaret and Garanoir grape variety. These grapes are processed together and matured in oak barrels to produce a superb wine, both strong and rich in tannin.

A by product of the decanting process for red wines in the region gives rise to elegant rosé wines using a technique known as ‘Saignée’, or bleeding the vats.

During the wine making process, a lot of emphasis is placed on the authenticity of the character of wine making region, particularly for Chasselas, by including the most up to the minute techniques like rigorous control of fermentation temperatures. For red wine, cold maceration and long barrelling times help achieve very high standards of quality.

The large majority of the wine produced is sold in bottles, destined for the private consumers throughout Switzerland. Restaurants, including some top end establishments also represent an important part of the Customer base.
