"Capite" (The Winegrower's Hut)

The Swiss word “capite” defines a little isolated house or a guard house. In the vines, the “capite” is a hut wherein the winegrowers take a break and put away their equipment The picturesque capites seduce the passers-by. Some winegrowers have understood this and warmly welcome their customers in the converted huts for the aperitif or even for the night!

The State of Vaud has recently changed one of its laws to allow the winegrowers to serve a glass of wine or sell some bottles during the tastings in the huts.
