Field Trip 2

Viticulture and Oenology

Switzerland is a small country for viticulture, but viticulture has always had a special place with a long tradition. A high quality is crucial to maintain its viability, due to high production costs. The research in this area is very dynamic. In Pully, you will discover a large diversity of grape varieties. During the visit of our vineyard, you will learn about Swiss viticulture and the last research in plant protection and management of abiotic stresses. The visit will end with a wine testing of our products.

A “buffet” lunch will be organized in Pully. Then, we will drive through the beautiful Lavaux, on the way to our next stop, the visit of a wine property.

Exchanges with professionals, agronomists, oenologists and extension officers will give an insight into the challenges but also the market opportunities of wine production in a small mountain country.
