Servagnin, originally from Burgundy, is the first Pinot Noir grown in Switzerland.
In 1420, Marie de Bourgogne, wife of the Duke Amédée de Savoie stayed in St-Prex. Offering the residents a few feet of this Servagnin she loves so much and that is how the Pinot Noir arrives in Vaud soil. Almost completely dissapeared from our vineyards in 1970, its rescue is held by only one vine!
Today, more than 15 wine-growers cultivate it under the name Servagnin. The right to the appellation (only between Morges and St-Prex) is the result of a strict tasting and control of production standards.
Many times rewarded, our Servagnin, raised in barrels, is a wine of a great elegance, racy, complex and structured. It has a ruby color and offers aromas of berries and sweet spices. It goes well with meat and delicacies.
