This beautiful family estate on the shores of Lake Murten is known for its wide range of specialties. The story of « Le Petit Château » begins in 1975. Eric, freshly graduated from the engineering school of Changins vinified its first vintage that year with 30,000 bottles (sold in three months). The culture of the vine is itself much older because René Simonet already owned some in the 1930s. The plot realignment in the 70’s allowed the Estate to grow and to plant varieties like specialties of the region.
