St-Saphorin, Dézaley, Epesses - names which roll easily off the tongue of fans of fine wine. And the views from the Lavaux vineyards, set high above Lake Geneva, provide the perfect backdrop for winelovers. The natural, cultural and culinary highlights of this area are definitely well worth a visit.

The blue-yellow "Train des Vignes" is a very convenient way to travel. In just twelve minutes it winds its way from Vevey through the lush green vineyards up to Puidoux-Chexbres. Here you can sample the local produce, as tasting is available at almost every cellar.

Now, to really get a taste you need to visit one of the charming pintes. These mini-restaurants are as typical of the Lavaux as are the original winegrowers' villages and the picturesque shores of Lake Geneva at the foot of its vineyards. All in all, Unesco deserves an award - as a world heritage.
