Discover Lavaux, the unique wine region that stretches along the lake between Montreux and Lausanne. Taste locally produced wines in an authentic wine cellar and learns more about local wine growing culture and grape varieties.

Explore the terraced vineyards of Lavaux. Of the five Vaudois wine regions, the UNESCO "Lavaux" region (between Lausanne and Montreux) is undoubtedly the most spectacular.

The king of Swiss cheese

This celebrated cheese takes its name from the valley (“Tal”) of the river Emme in the canton of Bern, where production of the cheese can be traced back to the 13th century. Emmentaler AOP is made from fresh untreated milk from cows fed on grass and hay but not silage. It takes about 12 litres of milk to make one kilo of cheese. The use of any additives is prohibited, as is the use of genetically modified ingredients.

Ticino

All of Ticino’s eight districts grow wine. The Ticinese vineyards benefit from region’s mild climate that is almost Mediterranean in character.

Three-Lake-Country

Like the vineyards in many other wine-growing regions, those in the Three-Lake-Country have experienced their ups and downs. The wine growing area reached the point at which the largest expanse of land was planted with vineyards in the middle of the 17th century, most likely due to the increased demand during the Thirty Years War.
