Vines have been cultivated here for thousands of years, in this area of unspoiled scenery and villages, where this long history and the presence of Benedictine monks are still evident, between Lake Geneva and the Jura Mountains. To the north and west the Jura Mountains provide protection from the wind; to the south, Lake Geneva reflects the light and regulates heat, and between the two are the mountain waters that run towards the lake.
The biggest wine-growing region in the canton of Vaud lies between the mountains and the lake. The La Côte appellation d’origine controlée (AOC) covers 2,000 hectares between Geneva and Lausanne, marked out by water courses and low walls, dotted with chateaux and manor houses.
Cave de la Côte was established in the heart of this terroir and AOC, and has adopted its name and values – tradition and reinvention, attachment to the land and its skills, pride in its history and craftsmen and the audacity to break the rules – sometimes.
The Cellar offers more than 400 Grands Crus specially developed and selected by professionals, to satisfy the tastes of any demanding connoisseur.
