The Domaine

The Domaine comprises of 4 hectares of terraced vineyards under the designation of Chardonne and St-Saphorin, at the heart of Lavaux a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s uniqueness is due to what we call the benefit of the 3 Suns…The benefit our vines get from the direct sun overhead, that of the sun reflected off the water of the lake, and that of the sun stored in the dry stone walls of our terraces, whose heat is bounced back on the vines.

The Chasselas, King of this regions grape varieties since the 14th Century, is the largest variety in our range. We use a small part of this matured on the lees for an added roundness. In order to offer a comprehensive selection, we have added a range of specialities to our whites with GewUrztraminer, Sauvignon and Pinot Gris.

Our reds are mainly comprised of single grape varieties such as Pinot Noir and Gamay, but we also have a blended red of Gamaret, Diolinoir and Merlot with has been barrel-aged.
