Lavaux Vineyards

 Lavaux Vineyards   

Lavaux is one of Switzerland’s most celebrated wine-growing regions. The vineyards, many of which have been owned by the same families for generations, are perched on terraced hillsides above Lac Léman between Lausanne and Vevey. Lavaux’s geographical situation is so unique--and so beautiful--that the Vignoble de Lavaux was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2007. Spoilt by nature, Lavaux is one of Switzerland’s most beautiful regions among other historic, scientific, sport, winetouristic and even artistic attractions. Lavaux owes its splendour to the decline of the Rhone glacier and the Cistercian monks who, in the 12th century, built miles of walls and terraces that are carefully maintained by today’s winegrowers. These craftspeople produce excellent wines that ripen thanks to three sources of heat: the sun, the reverberation of Lake Geneva and the heat given out by the stone walls at night. Visiting gourmets are delighted to taste the Chasselas, Pinot Noir and other grape varieties certified by three AOC (Appellations d’Origine Contrôlées) labels: Lavaux, Dézaley and Calamin.
