Open Cellars

Switzerland is mainly known for its watches and cheese. But they also make a lot of very tasty wines. They are so good that Swiss people don't want to share them with the rest of the world and export just 2% of their production. Fortunately we live almost in Switzerland so we can taste wines in their origin country. 

So last Saturday there was an Open Cellars festival in Vaud region (close to Geneva). For 15 CHF you could visit every of more then 300 vineyards and taste any of their wine. And there are plenty of them!

So we went to village of Tartegnin where we were able to visit 6 wine makers and taste many different wines and some local food specials.

We really enjoyed the scenery and atmosphere of this festival.  To keep it for a bit longer we bought a few bottles and brought them home.
