Caves Ouvertes Vaudoises

The gastronomic events

As Switzerland's culinary hot spot, the Lake Geneva Region celebrates its gastronomy and wines throughout the year and the four corners of the region. A must for native gourmets, these delicious festivals also attract epicureans from Switzerland and abroad.

Vaud is among Switzerland's largest wine-growing cantons. It likes to share its passion for Chasselas, Pinot Noir and Gamay during festivals when producers and wine lovers meet for a toast. The Arvinis Fair in Morges, the Open Cellar Days in the entire region and the Harvest Festival are the best examples for this event. The most eagerly awaited event is the popular Vintners' Festival in Vevey, which takes place every 25 years. The next edition will be held in 2019.

As an ideal accompaniment for the local great wines, the Vaudois terroir products also have their moments of glory. The gourmet routes everywhere in the canton combine walks in nature, encounters with producers and tastings of their specialties, be they drinks or food. As privileged products, nuts and truffles have their own dedicated festivals, the first in the Sévery Walnut Mill near Morges, the second in Bonvillars, on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel.
