Who’s the most beautiful of the m all? Forbes Travel did a comparison of wine regions across the globe and concluded that it’s the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux region on the shores of Lake Geneva.
This UNESCO World Heritage site forms Switzerland’s largest contiguous vineyard area with terrace after terrace offering magnificent views.
St-Saphorin, Dézaley, Epesses – names which roll easily off the tongue of fans of fine wine. And the views from the Lavaux vineyards, set high above Lake Geneva, provide the perfect backdrop for winelovers. The natural, cultural and culinary highlights of this area are definitely well worth a visit.
The blue-yellow “Train des Vignes” is a very convenient way to travel. In just twelve minutes it winds its way from Vevey through the lush green vineyards up to Puidoux-Chexbres.
