Terrasses de Lavaux

This trail zigzags across the prestigious Lavaux terraced vineyards, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Created through wine-related activities over the years, this land-scape and its typical villages are of universal beauty.
A prestigious terraced vineyard nestles on the Lavaux slopes. This unique construction was man-made in the 12th century in order to produce highly reputed wines. Chasselas is the most common grape variety. Lavaux has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Programme since 2007. The vineyard paths give visitors the impression of walking through the terraced vineyards between heaven and earth.

A wineyard trail overhanging the lake and crossing pictoresque villages is signposted between St. Saphorin and Lutry. The wine-making village St. Saphorin nestles at the foot of Mont Perèrin, directly on the shores of Lake Geneva. Discover its medieval character featuring narrow alleys and typical winemaker homes built between the 16th to 19th centuries as well as a church dating back to the 15th century. After that, the Vinorama awaits you at Rivaz. Over 290 wines from the entire wine-growing area are on display here. Of course, you can also taste the products. Another scenic sight: Glérolle Castle, situated on a rock below the village of Rivaz.

Signposts all along these paths explain the mysteries of vines and wine. Monuments such as Tour Marsens in Puidoux – protected as a cultural asset of regional significance – and the medieval village in Lutry bear witness to the region's past. The town featuring bourgeois and patrician houses from the 15th to 18th centuries spreads out over a fan delta at the foot of the Jorat Plateau. Welcoming wine cellars in the village centres let visitors discover the regional wines.
