The wine cooperative (also known as AVY) in the municipality of Yvorne in the Swiss canton Vaud
was founded in 1902 by eight winegrowers. Today, 150 members cultivate 55 hectares of vineyards, 85% of which are planted with Chasselas, the rest with Pinot Noir, Gamay, Gamaret and Garanoir. The cooperative is managed by director Patrick Ansermoz and cellar master André Parisod. The premium wines include the white wines made from Chasselas AVY, Chant des Resses and the Elevé sur lie stored in yeast, as well as the red wines Feu d'Amour (love fire), Pinot Noir Fût de chêne (aged in barrique) and Blanc de Noir (weißgekeltert).
