Proud of its appellations, its millennial history, its centuries-old traditions and its spectacular panoramic views, the canton of Vaud has six sub-regions and eight AOCs. Spread over more than 3,782 hectares, this region strongly influenced by the proximity of lakes is full of oenological, historical and cultural jewels.
The only Swiss wine region to cultivate a majority of white grape varieties, canton Vaud reveres its emblematic grape variety: however, in this region that is very attached to the notion of terroir, Chasselas is not mentioned, but rather place names, such as Yvorne, Féchy, Dézaley, or one of the nearly 150 production sites listed.
Vaud is distinguished above all by fresh and fruity white wines from the Chasselas grape whose delicacy, with numerous aromas, reflects the great diversity of soils. Red wines, made from Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes, represent around one-quarter of production.
