The "Cave de la Côte - Uvavins" cooperative in Tolochenaz in the La Côte area of the Swiss canton of Vaud was
founded in 1929. A total of 450 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by 480 members of the cooperative. Uvavins has built up an excellent reputation through extensive research into quality improvement. Every year, 30 communal wines and 21 domain wines are produced from twenty different grape varieties, separated by vineyard sites and plots, and a range of top quality gastronomic wines are produced under the label "Le vin vivant" (living wine). Among the premium wines are the white wine "Bernard Ravet" (Chasselas), aged on fine yeast and named after a famous chef, the red wine "Château de Coinsins" (Pinot Noir and Gamay, as well as pure Pinot Noir) and the sweet wine "Trilogy" (Chardonnay, Chasselas and Pinot Gris).
