Yvorne is located in the Chablais region of Vaud and was awarded the “Most Beautiful Swiss Villages” seal of approval in 2017. The village covers an area of 1,200 hectares and stretches from the banks of the Rhône to the foothills of the Tour d’Aï at an altitude of almost 2,000 meters.
The Yvorne wine-growing area is known throughout the country and even beyond its borders and enjoys an excellent reputation for its white and red wines. The commune offers seven different crus, with Chasselas making up the largest proportion. In addition, four specialties are offered, including a Mondeuse and an Œil de Perdrix.
With an area of 160 hectares, Yvorne is the largest wine producer in the Chablais region and is also one of the largest wine communities in the canton of Vaud. The special thing about Yvorne is its soil. On March 4, 1584, a violent rockslide occurred from the Tour d’Aï, which narrowly missed the village. The resulting masses of debris now characterize the unique soil structure. This soil gives the Chasselas produced here its famous character, which is prized throughout Switzerland.
Château Maison Blanche
The magnificent Château Maison Blanche rises majestically amidst the picturesque backdrop of Yvorne. Its gleaming white façade shines like a sparkling jewel amidst the vineyards that have surrounded it for more than four centuries. The terraced vineyards of Château Maison Blanche cover an area of 7.7 hectares and are now home to a wide range of grape varieties, including Chasselas, Savagnin Blanc, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Gamaret, Garanoir, Diolinoir and Cabernet Franc.
Château Maison Blanche embodies the symbol of the Yvorne vineyards, not only because of its external beauty, but also because of its rich history and the incomparable magic it exudes.
