As soon as you enter one of the region’s typical wine cellars, you are immersed in the odours of wood, stone and grape-to-wine transformation. An ideal atmosphere to enjoy a good glass of wine in the company of a Vaudois vintner.
A glass of good vintage wine often creates a hearty atmosphere! In the county of Vaud, almost all village vintners have their own cellar. From Easter to October, their cellar doors are open to the public who come and view the wooden barrels and modern vats.
These winemaking professionals often invite you to a friendly wine tasting in their “carnotzet”, a small private cellar space, whereas larger winemaking firms and terroir shops usually have a vinothek. The wine professionals enhance the very pleasant wine tasting sessions with explanations about the estate and winegrowing. Chasselas, Gamay, Pinot Noir and other varietals are perfect with local specialties such as butter “flûtes” or planchettes with various types of cheese and deli meats. Gourmet moments guaranteed!
