It almost happened in June… but it will happen for sure this autumn! Think brisk autumn days. Think beautiful colours. Think great food and wine. Think about finding reprieve for a moment from this crazy year (ask me about mine!!!) with a fabulous glass of wine and some crazy good food!
With a team of Foodies in Switzerland chefs, local ingredients, and award-winning wine from this historic vineyard, the theme of the dinner is “Elegant Abundance”. We’ll be celebrating the bounty of this region. And simply enjoying the evening.
Spend the morning exploring the slopes of the terraced vineyard in Lavaux. Then reward yourself with a delicious picnic lunch of special regional foods and an afternoon of wine tasting.
