The 3 generations
The adventure of Domaine Croix Duplex began in 1929. Samuel Vogel fell in love with the Lavaux region, so much so that he left his native German Switzerland to settle in the heights of the village of Grandvaux. He realizes his dream: to become a winemaker. He built his house and then a cellar to vinify the wines he was working on, inspired by his numerous readings on viticulture and oenology.
At the head of the Domaine since 1973, Jean and his wife Marlyse, work hard to develop the small family business. In 1975, the young couple bought their first vineyard in Epesses. This will mark the beginning of the development of Domaine Croix Duplex.
After a rich and passionate career, Jean and Marlyse handed over the keys of the Domaine to their two children. Simon, the eldest, graduated from Marcelin for viticulture and from Changins for oenology, left to study in German Switzerland for two years.
His sister, Maude, graduated from Marcelin in viticulture and worked for 10 years on the steep slopes of Lavaux before perfecting her knowledge in sales and communication. She joined the adventure in 2008.
Maude & Simon
Brother and sister work together to keep Domaine Croix Duplex alive and to perpetuate the traditions and values instilled by their Grandfather, founder of the family business.
