According to data from the Swiss Federal Office of Agriculture, the Swiss wine production in 2005 was about 1 million hectoliters, divided into 479 000 hl of white wine and 522 000 hl of red wine. Nearly all the national production is drunk within the national boundaries; less than 2% of the wine is exported (mainly to Germany). Switzerland wine regions can be divided in three zones as you can see in Switzerland wine map: The South: Ticino (wine region) and Valtellina. The West: Valais, Geneva. The North-East: Graubünden, Zurich. The wine region of Ticino started producing wine in the Roman era, but only after 1906, with the introduction of Merlot, did it begin to produce quality wine. Geographically the wine region is located in the south of Switzerland, and includes the canton Ticino and the district of Moesa (Misox and Calanca valleys) in the Canton of the Grisons. The terroir varies from acid soil in the northern part to limestone in the southern part.

In Valtellina the wines are produced mainly by Chiavennasca (the local name of Nebbiolo grape variety). Generally the quality of the wine is high, and most wines have the appellation DOC and DOCG. The most well-known villages for red wines are: Inferno, Grumello, Sassella, Valgella, and Maroggia. Sforzato (Sfurzat) is made in the Amarone style. There is wine production in the Rhine Valley north to the capital Chur. Valais is the largest wine region in Switzerland. The canton of Vaud is the second-largest winegrowing region in Switzerland. It is above all known for its fruity-fresh white wines of the Chasselas grape variety. The Vaud wine country is divided into four main areas: La Côte stretches out along the western part of Lake Geneva, to Féchy and Mont-sur-Rolle in the centre and municipalities such as Vinzel, Perroy and Aubonne at both sides as its shown in Switzerland wine map. The Lavaux region, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since June 2007, extends from Lausanne to Vevey and Montreux.

Maienfeld is a municipality in the district of Landquart in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. It is a tourist destination in the Alps, both because of the local wine and because it was the setting of the story Heidi. The wine region of German-speaking Switzerland comprises 17 cantons that can be split into three areas: Basel and Aargau, Zurich, Thurgau and Schaffhausen as well as Graubünden and St. Gallen. All six wine regions contribute to the diversity of the Swiss wine landscape. In terms of quantity, the largest contributor to wine production is the Valais at one third, followed by the canton of Vaud and German-speaking Switzerland. The smallest quantity comes from the Three Lakes region as its mentioned in Switzerland wine map. The vineyards of the Three Lakes region lie on the Lakes Biel, Murten and Neuchâtel, and stretch out over the cantons of Neuchâtel, Bern, Fribourg, Vaud and Jura.
