Since 1803, the city of Lausanne sells its wines in an auction. It is the oldest wine auction in Europe, a living tradition listed in the Vaudois immaterial cultural heritage. It’s the only time of the year for buying batches from the historic selection of the wines from Lausanne.
In order to try the wine of the year and all the wines from Lausanne, the sale will be preceded by two tasting evenings.
