Introducing Cave de la Côte
Discover the history of the Vaud (pronounced: VoH), cooperative and the talents of Cave de La Côte, from the oenologist to the producers.
The cultivation of vines here goes back thousands of years. A setting and villages of unspoilt charm, between Lake Geneva and the Jura, where the presence of the Benedictine monks and their long history can still be seen. To the north and west, the Jura mountains protect against the wind, while on the south side, Lake Geneva provides light, reflection and thermal regulation. Between the two, the water flows out of the mountains towards the lake.
Cave de La Côte was created in the heart of this terroir and this AOC, whose name and values it bears proudly. The attachment to the land and its trades, the pride in its history and its winegrowers, and the audacity to shake up the wine industry.
Between the two lies the largest wine regions in the Canton of Vaud. The AOC La Côte extends over 2000 hectares between Geneva and Lausanne, along parcels of land delimited by waterways and low walls, dotted with castles and Estates.
Cave de La Côte is proud of its history and looks to the future of wine in a sustainable and innovative way for the pleasure of all wine lovers, with over 400 references. The Cave vinifies several flagship estates of the Swiss wine industry, such as Château de Malessert, Château La Bâtie, Domaine Kursner, and Château d’Echichens.
