Swiss Wine Regions

The Swiss wine regions stretches a total area of nearly 15 000 hectares of vineyards. The west and the south of Switzerland, in the cantons of Geneva, Neuchatel, Ticino, Valais and Vaud are the places where wines mainly produced. The northwest part of Switzerland close to the river Rhein neighboring Germany was a brilliant area for the ancient Romans for Swiss wines.

The cantons of Valais, of Vaud and of Geneva, the three lakes' region (Western Switzerland), the German-speaking area (Eastern Switzerland), and the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino are the main wine-producing regions of Switzerland.  The geographic location of Switzerland is also facilitated in making the spot a highly Wine growing region. The particular geographical situation, in between four wine-producing nations (France, Italy, Germany and Austria), is accountable for offering an extreme diversity in the characters of its wines.

It’s an exciting feature of wine lovers of Switzerland is to explore its more than 50 grape varieties. Chasselas, the most typical white grape variety, whose tremendous sensitivity to both soil and situation is mirrored in subtle differences in taste. Chasselas is the main grape of Western Switzerland. To speak about the red grape varieties is to speak of the Pinot Noir.  Pinot Noir is very unusual in characters depending on the region from where it comes and the type of vinification undergone.
