Lausanne and wine

Did you know that Lausanne is the Swiss town that possesses the largest number of vineyards? Surrounded on the one side by the wonderful terraced vineyards of Lavaux, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and on the other by the La Côte vineyards, the town of Lausanne joined in 2018 the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.

Open cellars, harvest festivals, wine bars, tastings, … Lausanne people love wine and know how to honour it.
