PLAN YOUR TRIP IN ADVANCE
On the Geneveterroir.ch site or APP you’ll find a map showing the 3 main wine areas.
Choose one of the three areas that you’d like to explore on the day – and focus on
2/3 cellars in that area that you’d like to explore.
The 3 wine regions of Geneva are:
The RIGHT BANK, 864 hectares, which includes the Mandement. Satigny with 450 hectares is the largest wine-producing town in Switzerland. Further to the east are the vineyards of Céligny and Collex-Bossy.
Between the ARVE and the RHÔNE, 347 hectares, with the vineyards of Bernex, Lully, Confignon, Soral and Laconnex, to name but a few, set between the two rivers.
The LEFT BANK, 283 hectares, which stretches from Cologny to Hermance. Vineyards cover the slopes of Meinier, Choulex and Jussy among other wine growing communities.
Consult the Geneveterroir.ch map:
On the left side of the map – you’ll see a scroll-down menu, opt for Produits et terroir (Local products) – and then choose, Vente Directe (direct sales) and then Vin (wine) and slide button to the right. This will highlight where all the cellars are on the map.
