Domaine du Daley
Tradition and quality since 1392
The Domaine du Daley was founded in 1392, making it the oldest commercial entity in Switzerland. It stands on a historic site overlooking Lake Geneva. It is situated in the heart of the terraced vineyards of Lavaux, a UNESCO world heritage site.
The Domaine du Daley produces the finest wines according to a philosophy of quality and respect for the environment, working by hand on the vines and in the cellar, with small yields and long maturation times, ranging from 11 to 22 months to improve the wines. All the wines come from the grapes of vines located on the property, matured and bottled on the Estate.
The different Grands Crus are prepared with respect for each terroir and matured in wooden tuns or barrels providing a range of aromas, flavours and structures that we invite you to discover.
Various grape varieties are grown here, such as Chasselas, Chardonnay, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc. The wines are the result of sustainable farming, including cultivating the soil and harvesting the grapes by hand in order to extract the best fruit possible, allowing each its own unique terroir flavour, all classified as “Grand Cru”.
The ancestral cellar of 1397
The cellar of the old building dates from 1397. There, the different Chasselas are matured in wooden tuns with a capacity of anything from 1,800 to 7,500 liters. The grapes of each vineyard plot are pressed and made into wine separately in order to preserve the distinctive features and character of each terroir for the different selections. The wines are matured there from 10 to 12 months.
Two brothers and some of the best wines produced in Switzerland
Wines from Domaine Kursner are considered among the best in Switzerland, thanks to the know-how of two brothers, the meticulous production and a respect for nature that allows to benefit from the best the terroir has to offer.
The strength behind Pierre-Yves and Jean-Luc Kursner lies in their complementarity, and that of their wines.
The vineyards are located in Féchy, canton Vaud, part of an area on the slopes of Lake Geneva which is included in the Swiss national register of classified historical sites and countryside. Vaud’s vineyards make up one-fourth of the surface area planted in vines in Switzerland.
The typicity of this terroir is the result of a complete scouring of the soil when the Rhone Glacier retreated. The depth and the level of the Féchy terroir limestone are dictated by the gradient of the slopes, which can be as much as 30 percent.
Pierre-Yves and Jean-Luc Kursner seek to bring out the character of each terroir by vinifying by vine parcel. There is a great variety of red grapes planted in the Domaine Kursner. The red wines are vinified with a focus on expressing the typicity of each grape variety.
In March 2009 the construction of a new cellar began which was an important stage in the development of this family business, taken over in 1993 by the third generation. The new site brings together all parts of the domain’s winemaking activity and provides a perfect setting for wine tastings.
With frequent honors at a number of national and international wine competitions, the wine-making excellence of the Kursner brothers is widely recognized. We recommend enjoying our cheese assortment by complementing it with the red wine “Rouge Absolu”. This will ensure your Swiss gourmet experience.
