Wine tourism offers opportunities to explore a region and savour its products – and to meet the people who make them.
One example: visitors to Bex at the foot of the Vaud Alps can sample very fine dry or sweet wines from Domaine de Luissalet, winner of numerous Swiss and international awards. Like 20 other estates in the region, this winery offers a package comprising a tour of the cellar hosted by the vintner, who presents the estate and the winemaking process with a wine tasting and a bottle as a memento.
There are also versions of these authentic outings to suit gourmets. At L'Etivaz, for instance, visitors can taste the famous cheese as they learn about its production and the secrets of its flavour during a tour of the ripening cellars.
All these offers can be booked online at the Vaud Tourism Office's website.
