Château de Rosey lies above the village of Bursins, at the heart of the La Côte region, exactly half way between Geneva and Lausanne. Higher up, on the gentle wooded slopes that lead to the first foothills of the Jura Mountains lie four and a half hectares of vineyards.
It is known for a fact that the château was first built in the early 13th century in the rectangular fortress design known as the carré savoyard. It was then partially burned down, ravaged by wars, redesigned and expanded, undergoing several transformations through the centuries, culminating in its recent restoration. Today, having become a relais viticole with an orchard and kitchen garden, it has rediscovered its mediaeval vocation as a refuge, haven and stopping place.
