Chigny

Chigny is a small wine village by the railway line Bière-Apples-Morges (BAM).

The very name of Chigny attests to its antiquity, since the many villages in our area whose names end in -y go back to Gallo-Roman domains (such as Lully or Bussy), while those whose names end in -ens come from a Burgundian domain (such as Vufflens or Denens), around the 5th century.

The origin of Chigny is therefore the property of a man named Canius. The group of houses took the name of Caniacum, which in Romanic and later in French became Chinie, and then Chigny.
We know nothing about these early centuries, but the name Chinie is already mentioned in 1221 in the Cartulaire du Chapitre de Lausanne with the name of its oldest known inhabitant, after Canius, Wilhelmus or Guillaume.
It seems that at that time, Chigny was part of the parish of Joulens (a village which has disappeared near Marcelin). From an economic point of view, the territory was occupied by vineyards, meadows, fields and woods.

Today, Chigny welcomes you for your walks, in particular the pedestrian walk along the Morges (Sentier de la Morges) or the Balade des épouvantails.
During your walks, you will also have the opportunity to taste the wines produced by our winegrowers at the Domaine de Luze and the Domaine des Vaugues.
