Description

Uvavins is a large cooperative in the Vaud region created in 1929 by some of La Côte’s winegrowers. Their Vineyards are on the northern shores of Lake Geneva. Grapes come from various parcels located in the La Côte AOC.

Doral is a Chardonnay x Chasselas cross created in 1965 to produce a more aromatic Chasselas with a higher sugar content. The scientists experimented with Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay all crossed with Chasselas but in the end, only the last of these crossings was considered to possess the qualities they were looking for! 75% of plantings are in the Vaud (Northern side of Lake Geneva) where this hails from various plots between Morges and Nyon. There are currently only 35 hectares planted.
