The Estate

Grillette since 1884 until today: more than 125 years of innovations

Already in 1964 Grillette was one of the first wineries in Switzerland to grow Chardonnay. It was obvious for us that we had to follow the steps of the pioneers of the time. The Chardonnay was followed by the varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Pioneers of authentic great quality wines and adapted to a rigorous monitoring, we developed since the very beginning a mentality worthy of the greatest watchmakers. With the 2005 vintage, we continue with our search for authenticity by presenting for the first time a Cru Parcellaire Grillette made of a 100 % single grape variety.

We totally identify ourselves with our different terroirs and grape varieties.

Our first objective at “Grillette Domaine de Cressier” is to produce high-end wines from world renowned grape varieties. We want to prove that Swiss wines too deserve a particular place in the world’s wine list.

Our specific goal is to be able to propose our different crus from Grillette to gourmets, connaisseurs and wine-lovers for their sheer pleasure and enjoyment.

More information concerning the winery’s history is being prepared.
