The first wine was grown in Geneva over 2,000 years ago. Since that time viticulture has flourished uninterruptedly in Switzerland’s southwestern corner. Winegrowing has first been documented in the year 912 A.D.
This 2.5-hour tour is like a walk through an open-air museum.
The “Train des vignes” (vineyard train) runs on a fantastic route through the terraced vineyards of Lavaux, the landscape high above Lake Geneva designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007, with views of the Savoy and Valais Alps.
