Switzerland is a beautiful country that is extremely geologically diverse, resulting in diverse climates as well. Comprised of six regions that offer unique climates this also creates terroirs within that specialize in specific cépages (grape varietals) in that you can taste nuances in bouquets of the same wine varietal between different areas. All 26 cantons in Switzerland cultivate wine! Rotating clockwise from the western point of Switzerland, the six regions are: Geneva, Vaud, Three-Lakes, the German region, Ticino, and the Valais. The country produces approximately 48% white wines and 52% red, with nearly 70% of the total production taking place in western Switzerland along Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) and in the south and southeast amidst the Rhône Valley.
