A story of families and tradition since 1392

Wine tasting with Cyril Severin, wine maker on the banks of the Leman Lake 

A nose for wine..maker Cyril Severin,  certainly has got one! Since taking over the family vineyard in 2003, Cyril has been blending his wines the way a perfumer create fragrances. Using all of the 11 grape-varieties available to himChasselas, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Gamaret, Garanoir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.) as base material to produce  
wines greater than the sum of their parts. The wines are produced on the Estate and have won many prizes at regional and international competitions!
More than ten hectares are combined under the Lutry, Villette, Epesses and St. Saphorin appelation, so as to be able to extract the best grapes possible, all with their unique earthy flavour.
