Hey hey you !
Please note that I did not suggest Zermatt. The Lauterbrunnen valley is like no other place in Switzerland and I would strongly say take her there, even if you were there some time in the past. When I was a little kid I saw a photograph of the valley as seen from Wengen and so for me that view epitomizes the best of the Swiss Alps. You've been there before so that will help you to be the guide and believe me, it will be wonderful for you to see it again and to discover places and views you may have missed on your previous visit. You owe this to your wife !
If you want to visit another part of the country, may I suggest a few days somewhere on the north-eastern shores of the Léman, possibly Montreux. It is very different but yet still very Swiss, and you will get to experience a different language area. Based there, you can see the vinyards (with the grape harvest probably going on at that time), the Château de Chillon and the lovely town of Gruyères is not far away, easily done in a day. You can also take a trip on the CGN ships that ply the shores of the Léman (Lake Geneva) and even pop over to the French shore if the weather is nice. You could also visit Chaplin's World in Vevey, from which you have a wonderful view across the lake to Les Dents du Midi, some other Swiss Alps that are seldom mentioned on this website. www.chaplinsworld.com/ en By the way, the words I have highlighted are google searches you might find interesting.
