Women winemaker’s Celebration (Switzerland)

In June 10 women winemakers gave a tasting of their wines. It’s only in 2008 that women winemakers finally were able to join the Confrérie des Vignerons! And in 10 years, they caught up with 2 millennia. Now there are plenty of women who excel in vinification and produce vintages worthy of the greatest!

Open cellars, harvest festivals, wine bars, tastings, … Lausanne people love wine and know how to honor it. For the occasion, the Café de Grancy invited people to meet a panel of the best women winemakers of Romandie and their marvelous products. With the participation of Caroline Jouniaux, Catherine Cruchon, Noémie Graff, Laura Paccot, Mathilde Roux, Anne-Catherine Ruchonnet, Marie-Thérèse Chappaz, Christelle Conne, Emilienne Huttins and Céline Austing-Decollogny.


By the way, did you know that Lausanne is the Swiss town that possesses the largest number of vineyards? Surrounded on the one side by the wonderful terraced vineyards of Lavaux, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and on the other by the La Côte vineyards, the town of Lausanne joined in 2018 the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.
