Le Servagnin in an exceptional place

Come and admire Servagnin's barrels in the cellars of Château de Morges and discover its history.

Servagnin, also called Salvagnin, Sauvagnin, or Fleuron des Vins de la région de Morges is a Morgian Pinot Noir. It was Marguerite de Savoie, daughter of the Duke of Savoy, who introduced, in the 15th century, some vine plants of her favourite grape variety into the Vaud region. Indeed, following a plague epidemic on the other side of the lake, the family took refuge in Saint-Prex. To thank them for their warm welcome, she donated a few plants of this wine, originally from Burgundy.

Today, only vines planted with Pinot Noir, a Salvagnin clone of St-Prex, located in the Morges appellation area are entitled to the Servagnin de Morges appellation.
In addition, subject to very strict production conditions such as the fact that production must not exceed 50 hectolitres per hectare, that it must be vinified in oak barrels or that its ageing must last at least 16 months, very few winegrowers produce it.

Although vines were already recorded on Morgian territory in 1296, i.e. only 10 years after the creation of the town of Morges, the Domaine de la Ville acquired its first lands in 1547. Since then, its winegrowers have cultivated many grape varieties, including Servagnin, one of their emblematic varieties.

The vine at Château de Morges belongs to the Domaine de la Ville. In the castle's cellars, you can admire Servagnin's barrels. This humid and dark place, which was already used as a pantry at the time, is conducive to the conservation and maturation of wine.
