Lavaux

This tour goes from Châtel-Saint-Denis to Mont Pèlerin down into the vineyards of the Lavaux on the shores of Lake of Geneva. A visit to the Lavaux is always worthwhile.

The vineyard slopes are steep and terraced. Most of the work here is done by hand. There are also small transport facilities to aid with the vintage.
