Listed as a UNESCO cultural heritage site since 2007, the land stretching from Lutry to Vevey has been shaped by human hands since the 11th century. This vineyard boasting 10,000 terraces, interwoven with viticulture paths and dotted with wine-producing villages, has retained its authenticity and integrity, offering an architectural heritage boasting an exceptional richness and diversity.
The ChasselasThe Chasselas is the undisputed king of the region and originates from French-speaking Switzerland. An excellent table grape, this variety also lends itself wonderfully to the creation of wine. It has been cultivated in Lavaux since the 16th century and produces fine, powerful, mineral and full-bodied white wines that are very marked by the terroir.
In its Swiss Wine Guide 2022, the German-language magazine Falstaff places 9 Vaud wines in the category of the best Chasselas. Six of them are produced in Lavaux!
