Wine tourism and gourmet holidays

With eight vineyard appellations, stunning scenery and many culinary specialities, the Lake Geneva Region is Switzerland’s wine tourism and gourmet holiday capital. Enjoy, savour and greet the producers: these are the key words for a perfect wine tourism holiday.

A recent form of rural tourism, wine tourism is born of the desire of wine makers to share their passion and the curiosity of wine enthusiasts. These lovers of fine things delight in wine tastings, gourmet meals, relaxing walks and cultural experiences and with all these riches available in one area, the Lake Geneva Region has naturally become Switzerland’s wine tourism capital.

The region has eight appellations producing a wide variety of wines in beautiful natural settings. With its vineyard terraces plunging into Lake Geneva and listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, Lavaux is the most famous, but each region has its attractions which can be discovered along marked paths – the equivalent of the wine routes. Along these trails, gourmets can learn, enjoy and savour grape varieties such as chasselas, the predominant white wine served on all good tables.
