The City of Pully want to unit its activities in Rochettaz #Switzerland #Pully #wine


The city of Pully (Switzerland) has proposed a project that has the aim to unit the viti-vinicultural activities at one unique site, in Rochettaz (the second wine-growing place is Prevet), with the aim to free the land and galvanize the center of the city.

This reorganization should cost around 2,7 million of Swiss Francs, prompting reactions from the residents and the elected members.

Pully is a Swiss piece of  land, located in the Vaud Canton, near the city Lausanne and just in front of the Lake Leman. The cultivated area is 3.5 ha and the wines cultivated there have an AOC Pully (Appelation d’Origine Contrôlée). Traditionally, the grape varieties grown there are Chasselas, Chardonnay, Sylvaner and Sauvignon for white wine, and Pinot Noir, Gamaret, Gamay, Diolinoir and Garanoir for the red ones.
