Passionate about been a wine maker and about his hometown of Lavaux, Christophe Chappuis likes to help others discover his world and the legacy of his ancestors, winegrowers in Lavaux since 1335 for 19 generations! He even lets visitors feel what it’s like to be him for a few hours, with his "Lavaux-Experience". A workshop by the vines or in the cellar, a tasting, a typical meal at the Auberge de Rivaz and three bottles of wine await those who buy this package. The less adventurous opt for just the tasting and the meal.
Christophe Chappuis produces 13 vintages, from a dozen grape varieties. Chasselas, the king of Lavaux, is widely available, accompanied by many other varieties: Viognier, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Gamaret, Merlot, Diolinoir and Syrah. The range of wines produced by Christophe Chappuis clearly show his creativity, especially his "St-Saphorin au féminin" and "St-Saphorin au masculin," a concept developed according to the men and women’s different tastes.
