LE LUISSALET WINEGROWING REGION

And how about setting off on a bike ride to discover the local products of the region? 

The vineyards line the full south-facing slopes at Ollon and Bex.

The savoir-faire of our winegrowers in cultivating the vines on the sometimes steep slopes makes the Chablais wines unique, with varieties of grapes that have fruity and sunny aromas.  Chasselas, Pinot Noir and Gamay constitute the majority of what is produced, but you can also find specialities such as Garanoir, Gamaret, Sylvaner and Viognier, along with rosés and sparkling wines.

When taking a detour on an e-bike ride, you can go off and discover the best of what the soil and human effort have to offer you: wine tasting in the coolness of a dedicated winegrower’s cellar.

LE LUISSALET REGION


The Le Luissalet vineyard in Bex is a family business covering 5 hectares, run by Willy Deladoëy. It is located on the hill at Chiètres in Bex, the southernmost appellation in the canton of Vaud. Vinification is carried out either by the traditional method or in barrels. These wines, both dry and sweet, have received numerous national and international distinctions. They surprise the taster with their bouquet and smoothness.

Every year, around 40 tonnes of grapes are harvested, and these are from 15 different varieties.

The entire region is certified according to the Vitiswiss label, adhering to ecological production standards. The winegrowers and producers are guardians of the tradition’s heritage and ensure the authenticity of the wines that you taste.
