Village Yvorne Winter José Crespo


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.

In Vaud county’s Chablais region the municipality of Yvorne numbers just over 1'000 inhabitants spread over the hamlets of Versvey, Vers Morey and Vers-Monthey. Its 1'200 hectares stretch from the banks of the Rhône River to the foothills of the Tour d’Aï mountain at almost 2’000m altitude.

With some 160 hectares of vines Yvorne is one of the county’s largest winegrowing municipalities. Its wines are recognised country-wide and even abroad ; the reputation of both its white and red wines is second to none.

A veritable floral haven known far and wide, Yvorne is home to several horticultural companies whose speciality flowers are grown, distributed and sold all over the country. The industry boasts Switzerland’s largest surface area of greenhouses.
