descritpion

ECAL is located near one of the most stunning landscapes in Switzerland, the Lavaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the Middle Ages monks started to build terraces to grow wine. Due to this special terrain, the wine is still traditionally cultivated by hand.

This commitment to crafts-manship is reflected in the «Cep» knife. The handle is made of the extremely hard wood of the vines.

The slow-growing vines in Lavaux produce a particularly dense material that holds the hand-forged blade, manufactured in a small forge in the mountains near Lausanne.

The knife is especially suitable for a particular wine companion, the cheese. The characteristic tool turns every aperitif into an occasion with a special story.
