Three-Lake-Country

Like the vineyards in many other wine-growing regions, those in the Three-Lake-Country have experienced their ups and downs. The wine growing area reached the point at which the largest expanse of land was planted with vineyards in the middle of the 17th century, most likely due to the increased demand during the Thirty Years War.

Valais

It is not know whether wine was grown in the Valais before Julius Cesar defeated the Gauls in the 1st century B.C., since there is no documentary evidence. It is assumed that over two millennia ago a wild vine was discovered, the Vitis sylvestris, whose fruit resembles other berries of this region.
