Calamin Grand Cru AOC

The appellation Calamin Grand Cru AOC is like a jewel in the Lavaux crown. Equally precious, but also rare, the surface area of the appellation barely accounts for 2% of the Lavaux vineyards! Calamin’s elegant Grands Crus are some of the finest Swiss wines.

The appellation Calamin Grand Cru AOC is like a delicious secret kept by the picturesque village of Epesses, where the narrow winding roads are home to some of the best-known wine makers in Switzerland.

As in other vineyard parcels in the Lavaux region, it’s said that Calamin grapes are blessed with the heat of three suns: the sun itself, its reflection in Lake Geneva and the warmth of the stone walls – accumulated during the day and released at night.

The wines of the appellation Calamin Grand Cru are essentially made with the Chasselas grape with its powerful local character. Wine lovers and connoisseurs appreciate its unique flavours and slightly bitter finish.
