Le 3C at Ho­tel Les Trois Couronnes, Vevey

‘The Ho­tel des Trois Couronnes in Vevey has a Miche­lin-starred restau­rant, which I like, too, but for a glass of Calamin [Chas­se­las from the small­est Lavaux ap­pel­la­tion] and some mezze or a plate of pasta or veg­etable tajine, com­bined with un­in­ter­rupted lake­side views from the huge ter­race, Le 3C Brasserie is very hard to beat.’ www.hotel­trois­couronnes.ch

Caveau Corto, Grand­vaux

‘One of my favourite places for meet­ing up with friends over a glass of Calamin [the most lo­cal Chas­se­las ap­pel­la­tion] is Caveau Corto in Grand­vaux, named in honour of the leg­endary char­ac­ter Corto Mal­tese, whose story was il­lus­trated by Hugo Pratt, a res­i­dent for many years in the vil­lage. Open at week­ends from April to Novem­ber, it has spec­tac­u­lar ter­races with views down onto the vine­yards and across the lake. It’s jointly owned by 12 Grand­vaux wine­grow­ers, who each take a turn to staff the place and fea­ture their wines for that week­end, along with sim­ple plates of food.’ www.caveau­corto.ch
