SWITZERLAND
The Swiss are great wine lovers. All but 3 of the Cantons(districts) produce wine. The Cantons of Vaud & Valais, along the Rhone River, near Lake Geneva, produce 3/4 of all Swiss wines. The lake moderates the temperature; the Rhone Valley is warm and sunny; the high mountains protect the vines. The best known white varietal is Chasselas, also known as Fendant.
