Château de Luins

Castle of Luins

The castle of Luins has been dedicated to viticulture for several centuries and its wine is still as famous as ever.

The great history of the castle of Luins is difficult to trace, but its small history dates back to 1909. In that year, the wine merchant Hermann Trüssel bought the castle and its vineyard. It is still in the hands of his descendants. The Baechtold family preserves its authentic character, as well as its 10 hectares of vines.

According to the first archives dating back to the 13th century, it can be noted that Luins wines were already very popular. The wine-growing vocation of the castle of Luins is certainly not new. Even today, the grapes grown are entirely encavated in the estate and vinified in the traditional way in oak barrels.

Open from Monday to Friday, as well as on Saturday mornings and by appointment, the tasting room, traditionally called "carnotzet", welcomes wine lovers to taste the wines of the vintage. The visit of the cellar is worth a visit. There are still six wine-making presses installed there in the 1920s, one of which was reopened for an old-fashioned press in October 2018. Castle of Luins is also a popular venue for private events, especially weddings. This monument is classified as a Swiss cultural property of national importance in the cantonal heritage inventory.
