In 1077, Henri the IVth, emperor of Germany traveled to Italy to ask the Pope for his forgiveness. Passing through Lausanne, he asked for Bishop Broucard's help to accompany him to Carossa via the Mont-Joux (today the Grand St.-Bernard) pass. Forgiven, upon his return he rewarded the Bishop by offering him Lavaux of Lutry in Corsier and by naming him Prince. The Bishop thereon became responsible for the road linking France to Italy. He therefore in 1150 undertook the building of a dungeon in St.-Saphorin. These were the first stones of this Castle, which became the centre of the little seigniory of St.-Saphorin.

The  Castle has been completely renovated, and you have the possibility to rent the cellar, as well as the garden next to the lake and the covered terrace, and an indoor dining space. There is also a private port for those who wish to come to the wedding by boat.

Why this venue:

The Château's vineyards are situated in the Saint-Saphorin appellation in Lavaux and rest on sloping banks that dive into the Léman Lake. You will find a fantastic selection of wines in Glerolles own wine cellar, perfect to add that special something to your wedding at this Chateau.
