Your visit will end with some wine tasting: The lively ‘Le Marignan’, the oak-aged ‘Le Marignan’, ‘Le Rubis de Boisy’, the traditional ‘La Méthode’, ‘La Chèvre’, etc...
The Domaine uses organic viticulture under the Ecocert accreditation.
White grape variety (Chasselas) and red grape variety (Pinot noir and Mondeuse).

The Domaine is located on the banks of Lake Geneva. The fortified house looks out over its vineyard. Its origins, before being sold during the Reformation when Chablais was occupied by Swiss Calvinists, are monastic. Production has now been organic since 1993. In this Marignan vineyard, the Chasselas grape reigns supreme!
A whole range of tastes awaits you - from the sophistication of the white wines to the complexity of the reds aged in barrels. A speciality should also be mentioned: ‘La Chêvre’ - bottles of this heavenly Chablais wine are available here.
