Yvorne, Labelled the most beautiful Swiss village in 2017, features a harmonious patchwork of agricultural plains, vineyards, forests and pastures. Winegrowing may be the principal source of economy but the territory is also made up of a large agricultural area. These lands in the Rhône Valley are subject to intense farming without livestock.
Located in the Chablais region of Vaud, its 1,200 hectare territory stretches from the banks of the Rhône to the foothills of the Tour d'Aï, at an altitude of nearly 2,000 metres.
With nearly 160 hectares of vines, Yvorne is one of the largest wine-producing communities in the canton. A vineyard known throughout the country and even beyond its borders, the reputation of its white and red wines is well established. The Commune of Yvorne offers seven wines, with a strong emphasis on Chasselas. Four specialities are also offered, including a Mondeuse and an Œil de Perdrix.
A real floral embellishment known far and wide, several horticultural companies grow numerous specialities that are distributed and sold throughout the country. These companies cultivate the largest area of greenhouses in Switzerland.
