Aigle - Gastronomy & Wine
Kitted out with passport and special souvenir glass for the weekend, visit any or all of the 300 wine cellars across Vaud county. Shuttle buses stop at each vineyard to ensure mission is accomplished as you explore the quality wines of Chablais AOC.
During Pentecost weekend, Vaudois wines take to the stage. Around 300 wine cellars open their doors to visitors presenting their wine of the year which has only just been bottled.
In Aigle the winemakers gather in the Cloisters district in the heart of the vines. Family cellars, cooperatives and reputed wineries offer tastings of their finest vintages. It’s also the occasion to talk to the winemakers and to discover the many specialities of Chablais AOC wines.
And to give everything a real festival atmosphere, the streets are brought to life with live music, jazz, drum parades,… the ambience is infectious. Local produce is also on offer to accompany the wines so you can share a bite to eat with friends in a leafy pavilion.
