Vignobles Côtes de l'Orbe

Vineyard walk in Côtes de l’Orbe – Panoramic Vineyard

Côtes de l’Orbe AOC is distinctive for its terroir ideally suited to red grape varieties which are less common in the rest of the Vaud canton. Learn about this particular feature and many other secrets along this walk from the town of Orbe to the vineyard villages of Agiez and Arnex-sur-Orbe, where some twenty growers perpetuate a tradition of fine wines.

Situated between the Jura, the plain and the lakes, the Côtes de l’Orbe AOC wine region is atypical in that its wines have different characteristics to our other wine regions. Attracted by these unique features, a young generation of wine-producers is raising the profile of this terroir.

This vineyard walk – available on the Vaud:Guide free smartphone app – takes you through the important vineyard village of Arnex-sur-Orbe, to the little vineyards of Creux de Villars and Lavaux Vully. Here you can enjoy the wines of some twenty producers which mostly feature characterful red grape varieties, not forgetting the “roi chasselas”.

Along the walk, there are about thirty activities to enjoy, including multiple-choice questions, photos to shares and treasures to be found with your GPS, so you can win points and compare your knowledge with friends or members of your family.
