With its 36 hectares, the city of Lausanne is the leading public owner of vineyards in Switzerland. The vines of the Domaine de la Ville are cultivated in integrated production, and since 1803, the fine Pinot noir grapes have been auctioned publicly on the second Saturday in December in the Town Hall.
