Verrée Vaudoise Luca Carmagnola

The Verrée Vaudoise

Chillon Castle has recently opened a new venue for tasting its Clos de Chillon wine, its Grand Cru.

The Verrée Vaudoise is available in the Castellan’s Dining-room, ready to be pulled out and enable tasting and discovery of the castle’s wine and regional traditions for visitors to Switzerland’s most visited historical monument.

Since 2011, the castle has reconnected with its past and now has some forty barrels of wine in its underground cellar.

While wine-tastings after guided tours had been organised in an informal manner previously, growing visitor demand has resulted in a specifically dedicated wine-tasting venue in the castle.

From April to October, a thirty-minute wine-tasting is offered at the end of the guided tour, for groups up to 30 visitors.

This unique custom-fitted private space was financed with the valuable contribution of the Friends of Chillon Castle and of Henri Badoux SA - Vins.

The Verrée Vaudoise venue is reserved exclusively for wine-tastings following a guided tour of the castle.
