Wouldn’t it be great to go to the Swiss Alps, stay there, enjoy the sights and sounds and taste delicious wine? Well you can do that now and that too without burning a hole in your pocket! Those, whose interest has been aroused, read on. The place that you would want to go to enjoy the above mentioned things is Chexbres in Switzerland.
The place is truly breath taking. And it’s not just the view that is enjoyable. UNESCO has declared Domaine Bovy, a Chexbres vineyard and winery, a World Heritage Site. It is located near the lovely Lake Geneva. At this winery, one can taste delectable wines, stored in enormous, hand-painted barrels. All you have to do to enjoy this experience is call them ahead. Do remember to bring your own snacks, as some of the wines though taste harmless, can really hit you in the head. But the sparkling wines really are amazing with their crisp and dry smell of herbs and flowers.
If you get a chance, then do try out the rose of this region known as Lavaux, which is famous for its delicate, earthy flavour. What is even better is that you can stay at Domaine Bovy. At around 800 – 1200 CH (about $781 – $1,081) per week, an upstairs apartment will be yours. Do rent a car to explore the picturesque scenery. An interesting fact: Charlie Chaplin lived in town for 25 years! He liked it, I am sure you would too.
