The Winzergenossenschaft (also called AVY for short) in the municipality of Yvorne in the Swiss canton Vaud
was founded in 1902 by eight winemakers. Today, 150 members cultivate 55 hectares of vineyards, 85% of which are Chasselas and the remainder are Pinot Noir, Gamay, Gamaret and Garanoir. The cooperative is run by director Patrick Ansermoz and butler André Parisod. Among the premium wines are Chasselas pressed white wines AVY, Chant des Resses and yeast-raised leek sur lie, as well as red Pinot Noir wines Feu d'Amour (love fire), Pinot Noir Fût de chêne (aged in barrique) and Blanc de Noir (weißgekeltert).
