I can assure you that our lovely local wine is grown and made in the village and not in France or anywhere else.


You see, vineyards can be kept alive inside cities like Zürich, as in Enge, beside the Church and in Höngg and a few other places. So that the vineyards in the Canton of Geneva can be kept up and alive in spite of the expansion of the city

Wines from the Satigny Region also sell quite nicely in Zürich. Where vineyards and some farms are under municipal protection and some even owned by the City. In Zürich, some City presidents back in the 1930ies, 40ies and 50ies realized that there are limits to "free market" and where the state has to play a role

Sometimes you also see sheep grazing on the meadow below Kirche Fluntern.
