Outstanding vintages ofunique character in Cologny.
A few words from the winegrower...
Within ashort distance from Geneva
,our vineyard, the Domaine de la Vigne Blanche
supplies a widerange of very high quality Swiss wines, which have been cultivated from 7.5 hectares of vines
spread over four terroirs
. We are offering you the chanceto taste no less than a total of 19white, rosé and red wines,
some of which have been awardedmedals and awards.
Overlooking the harbor of Geneva with an incredible view of the jet d'eau fountain,our estate also has 25 hectares
of arable crops,
where we produce different cereals
andoilseeds, as well as 10 hectares of grassland.
During the 1940s, Jean Meylan, the farmer who worked with his father inGrand-Cologny, moved to the farm, which was later called the Domaine de laVigne Blanche.
Originally, only agricultural activity
, crops andlivestock supported the estate. Our wine-producing
did not begin until the start of the 1970s when Roger,Jean's son, planted the first vine
The name of the estate is quite apt because in an old 17th-century landregistry plan, the terroir
which hadjust been planted had already been called "En La Vigne Blanche".
Jacques Lacombe, the former manager of the restaurant Le Lion d'Or in Cologny,ordered our first bottle, which was served in 1973.
My father, Roger Meylan, resumed the wine-producing operation of the Domaine dela Vigne Blanche in 1979. Since then, the estate has kept expanding.We are true winegrower-producers
and quality wine makers, and vinify ourwines ourselves
Since 2002, Sarah Meylan Favre has worked alongside Roger as a fantastic oenologist
The wines which we produce on four terroirs
