Côtes de l'Orbe AOC

Located between Lake Geneva and Lake Neuchâtel, the Côtes de l’Orbe AOC is the oldest wine-making region in Switzerland. With its quality terroir, pretty villages and, of course, its wines – mostly red –, the Côtes de l’Orbe is a favourite region for wine tourism holidays.

The Côtes de l’Orbe wine-making area in the Yverdon-les-Bains region is exceptional by its long history and its wines. Clinging to the slopes around the Orbe valley, surrounded by beautiful countryside and pretty villages, the vines are blessed with a dry climate, ideal for growing red grape varieties, like Gamay and Pinot noir.

Over an area of 170 ha, about twenty villages continue to apply their wine-making traditions. To them, wine is about sharing and they are passionate about applying this code, warmly welcoming wine enthusiasts for wine tastings in their cellars or at village events.

The Arnex Gourmet Trail or the Côtes de l’Orbe Half-marathon, inspired by the Médoc Marathon, are an opportunity to sample this appellation, characterised by the high quality of its wines, the innovative spirit and the enthusiasm of its producers.
