My wife and I are doing a 21 day Switzerland rail trip, and the final 5 days we want to dedicate only to Switzerland winery's.

1) What is the best city to stay to have the easiest access to the best vineyards? Montreux? Lausanne?

2) Any recommendations on the best wine tours, vineyards, or routes to enjoy as much as possible?

3) How do people get to the vineyards? Taxi, or buses, or booked tours?

4) Are there any really good wine "experiences" like restaurants, tastings, or wine and cheese picnics etc we should put on the list?

We've never been to Switzerland, so any help would be much appreciated.

Hi VolatilityTS,

I think that the most famous vine region is Lavaux, between Montreux and Lausanne: www.myswissalps.com/lakegeneva.

I would stay in Montreux or Vevey: www.myswissalps.com/montreux/hotels and www.myswissalps.com/montreux/rentals.

Read about the Swiss gastronomy here: www.myswissalps.com/aboutswitzerland/culturehistory/food. In the box on the right side called "Information on other websites" you'll find useful links.

This one is a great walking route through Lavaux: www.myswissalps.com/hiking/lutry-epesses. Or you can simply walk down from Chexbres to Rivaz.

If you would prefer an organized tour, I recommend this one: Vine Stories: Lavaux & Lutry wine walk.

Please have a look at these older threads too, you'll find useful information:

I hope this helps,

Ildiko
