Many people wonder why Switzerland does not export much of its wonderful tasting wine. If it is to save it for the locals, then traveling to Switzerland for tasting the Swiss wine would be worth it. Switzerland produces the most delicate and refreshing wine. Therefore, it is best to dive right in and have a tasting session of your own. Luckily, AlpExcursion provides a fulfilling trip to Lavaux to taste the best Swiss wine.
On the shore of Lake Geneva, in Vaud canton, the quarter quantity of all the Swiss wine is being produced. Lavaux is famous among different regions as a terraced wine-grape growing area in the canton of Vaud, western Switzerland.
Lavaux owns the most extensive vineyards in Switzerland, which span 800 hectares and have been protected by UNESCO since 2007.
As the wine tourism zone boasts of its gorgeous landscape and outstanding wine production, these lovely hillside terraces excite tourists, especially wine enthusiasts. Uniquely enough, it distinguishes itself with delicious white wines made from Chasselas grapes.
Our private excursion will take you to this delicate world of wine starting from your hotel lobby in Bern while driving through the Vaud countryside to UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lavaux also known as "The Wine Road".
When you arrive, you will have the opportunity to walk and enjoy the beauty of the vineyards and the views of Lake Geneva and the alps. It is a great place to sit with a glass of wine and relax.
Based on a pre arranged appointment by AlpExcursion’s team, you may like to attend Blaise Duboux. It is a great place, for its knowledgeable owner who uses the biodynamic methods in the vineyards and gladly shares cultural information about the vineyards during an hour of wine gourmet tour. One of Lavaux’s must-visit places is the Cave of the Crausaz, which offers a variety of wines in one place. Here, you will have an opportunity to taste the wines while getting acquainted with the secrets of winemaking.
Trying a wine-soaked meal in Lavaux is highly recommended. Auberge du Raisin in Cully is among the favorites for authentic Swiss Fondue or Raclette accompanied with a glass of dry wine. Moreover, you will also have the option to dine at another panoramic restaurant to enjoy a tasty meal.
After the delicious gourmet trip with AlpExcursion.com, you will comfortably get back to the starting point in Bern.
