The village of Allaman enjoys an exceptional setting that is enhanced by ancient buildings. The owners of Château Rochefort fulfil a triple mission: give travellers a warm welcome, invite them to discover the beauty of the surrounding vineyards and enhance every event or seminar they attend.
The spray of the lake waters and the verdant vitality of the vines invigorate walkers who, on their way to Santiago de Compostela, take a break at Allaman. This charming La Côte Village idealizes the culture of wine.
Owned by the city of Lausanne, the Rochefort estate mainly produces red wines. Pinot Gris and an effervescent assemblage are the castle’s other “specialties”. The biodynamic treatment of the vine (care by plant extracts, respect of lunar rhythms) yields a production that is in perfect harmony with nature.
The production site holds the Vaud Œnotourisme certification. The cellar can be visited with or without booking a table, and the “discovery” offers in the wine bar are simply a must. In summer, the terrace welcomes spontaneous visitors from Wednesday to Saturday to enjoy one of the 27 specialities of the city of Lausanne, accompanied by typically Vaudois finger food. The four-star rooms are charmingly modern. Their comfort and equipment vary, depending on the selected category.
Throughout the year, activities liven up the estate. Seminars, business evenings or family events turn into a top-class gustatory, cognitive and human experience.
