WHERE OUR WINES COME FROM

TERRACES OF LAVAUX

Now considered a site of universal value, Lavaux has been elevated to the status of world heritage by UNESCO. Surrounded by three suns, namely the direct sunlight from above, its reflection from the Lake of Geneva and the stone walls on its back, the region of Lavaux benefits from an extraordinary climate.

FAMILLE CHAPPUIS SINCE 1335

As far as we go back in history and explore the memory of the region, the Chappuis family of Arc-En-Vins have always had wine in their blood. In fact, with nearly 700 years of wine making history, the family’s savoir-faire fulfil the highest standards of wine craftsmanship. With their production facility in Chexbres, Chappuis is our proud mastermind behind the Sapphire and Blood Diamond.

DIZERENS, THE HEART OF LUTRY

Maxime Dizerens, a 5th generation winemaker, brings a fresh approach to Lavaux’s wine culture. In the otherwise Chasselas dominated region, Dizerens focuses on a selection of untraditional grapes. As our producer of the white wine, a magnificent Pinot Gris, he truly represents the modernization within the UNESCO landscape and perfectly fits our vision to break the norms of today's wine market.
