Domaine de la Balle et des Abesses

Domaine de la Balle et des Abbesses

The 17-acre domain owes its name to the area where the buildings are situated, in “Baille” which in old French means “le bourg avant le château” which literally translates as “the town before the castle”

Cultivated on clay soil, the grapevine has found a soil that it thrives on and produces fine and subtle wine on its land.

The perey family were already cultivating grapevines in Vufflens-Le-Château in the 15th century.

The domain has been passed down through generations and has grown during the years. As of 1981, Michel Perey begins to run a part of the family domain and dedicates his time, in particular to viticulture. In 1985 he re-creates a wine cellar and wine stocking, which had ceased in 1929. The Domaine de la Balle is born. In 2006, his wife Suzanne, opened a small “Pinte” (a bar in Switzerland) to enhance the domain’s products. In 2009, following their training to be cellarwomen and winegrowers, Solange and Lucie Perey highlight the magnificent Domaine des Abbesses in Echandens.

These vine and wine enthusiasts have the pleasure in hosting wine tasting at the Domaine de la Balle in Vufflens-Le-Château or at the Domaine des Abbesses in Echandens. Visitors are welcome during the estate’s opening hours or upon request. There are various packages offering wine tastings served with local products or even full menus. Certified by Vaud Œnotourisme (Vaud Wine Tourism), the Perey family offers these gourmet moments both at Domaine de la Balle and Domaine des Abbesses.
