The Frères Dutruy vineyard is located in the Terre-Sainte region, south-west of Lake Geneva. Different grape varieties are spread over two estates: the Treille in the commune of Founex, whose clay-limestone soils are ideal for the slow ripening of grapes, and the Doye on the Coppet side, whose alluvial and stony soils allow the grapes to concentrate in a surprising way.
For the last ten years, the Dutruy brothers have been striving to cultivate their estate organically. Three years ago, they received certification to prove that their vineyard meets the criteria of a famous organic label. This label can now be found on the labels of their bottles. The 2019 vintage is the first to welcome the special mention: "certified organic wine". They understand that treating the vines in the right organic way produces a better quality of wine. "You simply have to invest more hours and energy in your work."
The two brothers are awarded the Grand Prix du Vin Suisse.
A new cellar is constructed.
