Wine tourism experiences
With more than 2,000 hectares facing Lake Geneva and a centuries-old tradition of vine cultivation, La Côte AOC is the largest wine-growing region in the canton and a choice destination for wine tourism. Thanks to ideal conditions, great wines are produced here.
Planted on the gentle slopes of the shores of Lake Geneva, the vines give the landscape a unique aspect in this part of the country. The district of Nyon, an integral part of the AOC La Côte, has 1,143 hectares of vineyards, which makes it the largest wine-producing region (53.6%) in the Canton of Vaud.
It has 12 production sites and more than 32 castles and patrician residences, attesting to a centuries-old tradition of vine growing.
The favorable climate of the region allows you to taste Chasselas, Pinot, Gamay and other grape varieties at the winegrowers or in the typical inns of the region.
