The vineyards of Lavaux are protected from development. Since 2007, Lavaux is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Since 2016, the vineyards of Lavaux are not treated with synthetic pesticides any more.
Lavaux is a region in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland, in the district of Lavaux-Oron. Lavaux consist of terraced vineyards that stretch for about 30 km along the south-facing northern shores of Lake Geneva.
Although there is some evidence that vines were grown in the area in Roman times, the actual vine terraces can be traced back to the 11th century, when Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries controlled the area. It benefits from a temperate climate, but the southern aspect of the terraces with the reflection of the sun in the lake and the stone walls gives a mediterranean character to the region. The main wine grape variety grown here is the Chasselas.
