Vineyards near Lausanne

Hi all,

I'd like to ask you, as locals or people living there, about the wines produced near Lausanne, closed to Lac Leman. I can get some names in internet, and I know that each person has his own taste, but what do you think about them? What Swiss people think about them, compared with other wines? It's easy (not cheap, I know) to get a small portion of vineyard there? Do you know how they do to hire workers for harvesting?

Thanks!

Re: Vineyards near Lausanne

No idea how they pick the people to harvest (faire le vendange) the wine, but you may like to take a gentle drive along the Route du vignoble de la « Côte » which runs right past you in Lausanne and stop at all the different producers along the way.


The wine in Switzerland rates amongst some of the best in the world, personally I have not tasted better whites or rosés anywhere else. Small production and high internal consumption has made Swiss wine their best kept secret...since foreigners bank accounts got opened up for scrutiny that is...

Re: Vineyards near Lausanne

A friend of mine happened to buy a house in that area and it came with a bonus, property had established vineyards on the land. He quickly found out that a neighbor ran the cave, and they continued the existing agreement which was that the neighbor tended and cultivated the grapes, including harvest and processing into wine. The homeowner got a part of each harvest, bottled and delivered, and designed his own label.

Not sure if that's what you are looking for, but that is one way to have your own smallscale label.

Re: Vineyards near Lausanne

If you are looking to buy a vineyard, first research whether you would be allowed to own agriculture land. The relevant law is the BGBB, plus there might be cantonal and local regs as well. Not all agriculture land is held under the BGBB, though, and parcels that have already been re-zoned are much easier for a foreigner to buy.

As always, YMMV by canton and Gemeinde. I have no idea how things are viewed in Lausanne, but in my area buying under the BGBB is very complex - and difficult for a foreigner. (And almost impossible for a non-EU.) You might find practices are quite different out your way, though.

Re: Vineyards near Lausanne

Thank you all!!! Rachel, I've fone that trip you said, that's why I'm asking; it seemed difficult to get a place there. Runningdeer, that was was I was thinking about, a small buch of vineyard in those conditions would be perfect. Melloncollie, sorry, but I don't know what is BGBB and YMMV (it sounds as I should, but I don't, sorry again!).

Google is your friend. Search for internet acronyms, for example, and you'll get pages like this:

BGBB
BGBB is one you won't find in most internet acronym lists. It's the Bundesgesetz über das bäuerliche Bodenrecht:

https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...253/index.html

Do not even contemplate purchasing agrigultural land until you read and understand this particularly abstruse piece of legislation. Or until you start playing Jass with the local Big Cheese, the director of the cantonal Whateveramt, and a savvy lawyer. Also practice jumping through hoops.

Well, that advise pertains to my experience with the various pieces of farmland I've tried (unsuccessfully) to buy in three cantons. No idea how, or even if, those in the free-wheelin' Romandie apply the above. Thus, Your Mileage May Vary.
