Champagne (Canton of Vaud)

Small wine-growing town with 700 inhabitants in the Bonvillars area in the north of the Swiss canton Vaud, It was first mentioned in 885. The vineyards have grand cru status and cover 28 hectares of vineyards, most of which are planted with Chasselas and some red varieties. The community was mainly due to the legal dispute with the French Champagne known. After years of legal disputes, the municipality was banned from 2003 onwards due to the bilateral agreements between Switzerland and the EU to use the designation of origin reserved for France "Vin de Champagne". This affects not only the wine, but also other products. The community continues to fight for recognition of the previous name. In 2008, the Cornu bakery, registered in the municipality, registered its Flûtes brand “De Champagne Suisse” (Flûtes = salt and cheese aperitif biscuits) in Bern, causing new legal disputes.
