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.
It is a female succession that will mark the third generation.
After collaborating with her brother for more than 10 years, Maude, daughter of Jean and Marlyse, is now in charge of the family estate and is committed to promoting and maintaining the company’s philosophy by ensuring that the wines produced reflect the terroir of the region while maintaining the quality for which Domaine Croix Duplex is known.
From an early age, Maude learned from her father how to cultivate the vineyard and produce quality wines. She was able to develop her skills and knowledge through her training in viticulture
Today, Maude continues to work hard to improve the vineyard and its products. She has surrounded herself with passionate collaborators and quality suppliers to produce even finer and tastier wines
