What is it about?

With more than 1400 hectares of vineyards, Geneva is the third-largest winemaking canton in Switzerland. Around this international city lies an oasis of greenery and tranquillity which enjoys a dry, sunny climate. The first Swiss canton to introduce an appellation of origin, Geneva has spent a quarter of a century focusing on high-quality viticulture and has introduced major diversification into its vine mix. As in the rest of Switzerland, Gamay, Pinot Noir and Chasselas form the majority, but they are now also seeing competition from Gamaret, Merlot, Garanoir, Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc and Viognier.

App Store Description

With more than 1400 hectares of vineyards, Geneva is the third-largest winemaking canton in Switzerland. Around this international city lies an oasis of greenery and tranquillity which enjoys a dry, sunny climate. The first Swiss canton to introduce an appellation of origin, Geneva has spent a quarter of a century focusing on high-quality viticulture and has introduced major diversification into its vine mix. As in the rest of Switzerland, Gamay, Pinot Noir and Chasselas form the majority, but they are now also seeing competition from Gamaret, Merlot, Garanoir, Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc and Viognier.
This application developed by VINUM magazine invites you to explore a fast-developing winemaking region. We are throwing the spotlight on the 90 nuances of Geneva wines. Almost every single producer in the region provided our journalist with their favourite bottle for tasting and comment. In addition to this flavour panorama, you can also discover key vineyard events such as open cellars – which attract nearly 25,000 visitors per year – and the Rallye Gourmand which offers an opportunity to taste exceptional products from passionate producers.
Finally, we wanted to highlight the lake, a key part of Geneva’s soul. Known locally as ‘Léman’ but by the rest of the world as Lake Geneva, this lake is home to around thirty different species of fish and one crustacean. Discover talented chefs working with flavourful species such as fera, Arctic char, pike, crayfish, perch, lake trout or monkfish. Served as a tartare, à la meunière or seared on one side, these native fish are every bit as good as the noble species imported from the Atlantic or the Mediterranean which are found in all of the canton’s top establishments. In addition, the chefs and sommeliers we have encountered have confirmed that the diversity of Geneva’s vineyards enables subtle pairings with the whole spectrum of fish produce. Although Chasselas, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay offer timeless pairings, our contributors have also managed to create miraculous marriages using Pinot Gris, Savagnin Blanc, Gamaret and oak-aged red blends.
To summarise, this tasty application immerses you in the often overlooked delights of a city famous for its international organisations, finance and cultural activities. Whether you have been Genevan for generations, are an expat recently settled in Carouge or Cologny, or are just here for the evening, VINUM Geneva gives you the keys to the most delicious secrets on offer in the city of Calvin.
