In the Land of Chasselas

From the plains of Geneva to the hillsides of Graubünden, via the terraced vineyards of Lavaux or the steep slopes of Valais, Switzerland has a lot to offer in terms of climates and terroirs. Almost 15,000 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the regions of Vaud, Valais, Neuchâtel and Ticino. The relief of the Alps has a lot to do with the richness and diversity of the grape varieties and soil types found in Switzerland, despite the rather small size of the vineyards compared to its European neighbours. The most widely planted grape varieties in Switzerland are Pinot Noir, Chasselas, Gamay and Merlot, but there are dozens of other varieties cultivated and some regions, such as Geneva or Valais, have built their reputation on grape varieties such as Gamaret, Riesling-Slyvaner, Petite Arvine or Païen. Some of these varieties are rarely found outside the country's borders.

The great names of Swiss wine, Marie-Thérèse Chappaz and her sweet wines, Daniel Gantenbein and his Pinot Noir from Graubünden or Luc Massy and his Dézaley Chemin de Fer, have all worked hard to promote Swiss wine abroad, even though the country only exports 2 to 3% of its production! Discover the heroic work of Chèrouche or Mythopia in the Alps, the thirst wines of Paul-Henri Soler in Geneva or the magnificent Pinot Noir of Christof Ruof, enfant terrible of Graubünden, and many others...
