A Glass of Wine (or Two)

Maxx-brides Honeymoon - - Destination -

The Lavaux re­gion, a UNESCO world her­itage site, fa­mous for its wines, of­fers an ex­cep­tional view of Lake Geneva and the Swiss and French Alps.

Just a short drive from Lau­sanne, with pris­tine wa­ters, cute lo­cal beaches and an im­pres­sive net­work of walk­ing trails, we ar­rive at the pic­turesque wine­grow­ing re­gion of Lavaux. The ter­races be­tween Lau­sanne and Vevey were first carved out for wine pro­duc­tion in the 13th century, leading UNESCO to des­ig­nate the re­gion – called Lavaux – a world her­itage site. Sit­u­ated be­tween Lau­sanne and Vevey on the north­ern shores of Lake Geneva, Lavaux has all the beauty of Italy. Its mi­cro­cli­mate gives it an al­most Mediter­ranean feel dur­ing the sum­mer months, when lo­cals don swim­ming cos­tumes, shades and san­dals to revel in the best back­yard in cen­tral Europe.

There is a walk­ing route through the ter­raced Lavaux vine­yards. En­joy this UNESCO site, which runs along­side the lake be­tween the Chateau de Chillon and the city of Lau­sanne. Catch a scenic view of Mon­treux and Vevey from the ter­races while you en­joy your pic­nic with a glass of wine (or two).
