The Lavaux wine region stretches from Lausanne to Vevey.
This very special region is a UNESCO World Heritage Sight. One look and it’s easy to see why: Lavaux’s vineyards cover steep hillsides and every point offers views of Lake Geneva and the Savoy Alps.
Picture-perfect villages with winding cobblestone streets dot the vine-filled hills.
There are a few different roads to follow through the vineyards. The Corniche winds between the lakefront road and the higher-up train tracks. The Grande Traversée begins low, near the water, and snakes up the mountain. There are countless small roads that veer off either path.
Châteaux dot the hillside.
Within the vineyards are those of Dézaley, which produce some of the Switzerland’s highest-rated grand cru wines.
The best way to see the Lavaux region is to simply start driving or walking and let yourself get a little lost.
