The Wines By Gordon Bass In Switzerland, Many Times More Wine Is Consumed Than Is Made And Comparatively Little Is Exported. Although Wine Is Made In 20 Of The 22 Cantons, Only Four Areas Have Commercial Significance. Neuchatal, The Best Known To Us, Comes From Primarily The Northern Shore Of Lake Neuchahtal. The Wines Of The Vaud Originate In The Lovely Necklace Of Towns That String Along The Northern Shore Of Lake Geneva (Leman), From Geneva Through Lausanne, And Monteux To Aigle. The Valais Is The Cradle O F The Rhone, And Produces Some Very Good White Wine, And The Best Of The Red. The Ticino Region, Not Far From Milan, Bears More Than A Passing Resemblance To The Wines Of Italy.
