Due to climate change and evolving consumer demand, wine making is undergoing substantial change as winemakers need to develop new grape varieties and to find new ways of producing high quality wines with fewer or no additives. Agroscope is the Swiss federal centre of excellence for research in the agriculture and food sector. This field trip gives you access to Agroscope’s Pully research facilities addressing tomorrow’s winemaking challenges in Switzerland. From Agroscope you will be taken to the Domaine Croix Duplex, where you can sample the estate’s vintages produced today using biodynamic methods and admire the exceptional vue on the terraced vineyards of Lavaux, UNESCO world heritage, while having lunch.
