Aigle, a castle in the vineyards
Set in the middle of a vineyard, Aigle town is protected by a medieval castle that has been transformed into a museum. The nearby Montreux Golf Club and Parc Aventure provide unforgettable moments.
Surrounded by vineyards, Aigle town (415 m) is located at the entrance to the Rhone valley. Its 12th-century castle controlled the valley and the access to Pays-d’Enhaut.
Aigle Castle has been painstakingly renovated and presents the collections of the Vine, Wine and Label (of wine bottles) Museum.
Scoured by the foehn, the grapes of this vineyard are very mineral. Using fully matured grapes, the wines taste of caramel. The Aigle vineyard produces red and white wines, essentially Chasselas, Gamay and Pinot, under the controlled origin appellation Aigle AOC.
Next to the vineyards, Aigle forest contains an adventure park with 9 tree-to-tree itineraries. Suspended footbridges 15 metres above ground guarantee strong emotions for young adventurers.
For softer leisure activities, the Montreux Golf Club offers a diversified and selective 18-hole course. The renovation of this historic golf course enhances the surrounding ancient arborization.
