Château Maison Blanche

It all began in 1573. Antoine d’Erlach and his brother Borckhardt have a white house (Maison Blanche) built just outside the small borough of Yvorne.

A terrible landslide in 1584 forces a mass exodus to escape from the ensuing poverty, then in 1609, the Maison Blanche is restored and fortified by consolidated walls and a new roof. In 1750 the dwelling is bought by the then governor of the small neighbouring town of Aigle, Frédéric Würstenberger. The house stays in his family right up until the end of the 18th century. 100 years later the Maison Blanche is christened Château Maison Blanche following the addition of a dungeon and pinnacled tower.

In the 1930s winemaking families Schenk and Rosset from Rolle buy the Château and dedicate it to viticulture. In 1974 misfortune in the shape of a fire destroyed the roof and wooden structure but the Château was quickly renovated and once again became the pride of the region. For over 400 years, Château Maison Blanche has come to symbolise the vineyards of Yvorne almost single handedly by virtue of its beauty, its eventful history and its magic.
