Quick facts:

  • The vineyards in Vaud are some of the oldest in Europe.
  • Henri Cruchon founded the domaine in 1976, and now his granddaughter Catherine is managing the cellar. The next generation to run the domaine will be entirely women.
  • “Le Morget” is the name of a warm breeze that blows through the vineyards at night, helping the grapes attain a perfect ripeness.
