BY BIKE, DISCOVER LAVAUX AND ITS WINE, DEPARTURE FROM RIVAZ (SWITZERLAND)

breathtaking view of the Alps and Lake Geneva.
You will thus set off on the wine roads, by bike, to meet winemakers, whose internationally
renowned wines are certified Lavaux AOC, but also producers and artisans who contribute to
the influence of Swiss know-how.
You are a company or an organization, and you are interested in the Wine and Ride experience for your employees, partners, customers, etc.

YOUR CUSTOM CIRCUIT
BOOK YOUR WINE AND RIDE EXPERIENCE
CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOUR
In order to propose an offer adapted to the interests of the greatest number, Wine and Ride Lavaux has chosen to develop several circuits around 3 distinct themes: Wines and Gastronomy, Wines and History, Wines and Crafts + a hybrid formula in after work, to allow the active to take a gentle break after their working day.
As a common thread, the oenological discovery remains the main activity of these
experiments. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Lavaux enjoys an international reputation as the beauty of its territory is unique in the world: its terraced vineyards share the view between the Alpine peaks and the magnificent Lake Geneva. A singularity that has earned the Lavaux vineyards their own AOC of the same name!
During each experience, the visit of one of these exceptional domains is included,
complemented by the discovery of the vineyards, then the cellars, followed of course by a wine tasting.
To date, 10 wine partners have chosen to join the Wine and Ride Lavaux adventure: Domaine Chaudet in Rivaz, Domaine Bovy in Chexbres, Domaine Joly and Domaine Croix Duplex in Grandvaux, Domaine Alain Chollet Vitis Musicalis and Domaine Terres de Lavaux in Lutry, Domaine Gaillard & Fils SA in Epesse, and finally the Cave de Moratel, Domaine Potterat and Laurent Berthy in Cully.
SELECT THE DURATION OF THE DESIRED EXPERIENCE
A well-planned program for the most motivated, from 8:50 am to 6:00 pm for a total distance covered by bike of about 40 km and a height difference of 1250 m. This includes the lunch meal composed of 100% local ingredients, tasted by a winegrower or in the heart of a historic site following the chosen circuit.
In the morning or afternoon, count between 4 and 5 hours for the entire activity, and about 20 km to cover on 800 m of altitude difference.
BOOK AN ELECTRIC ASSIST BIKE RENTAL OR CHOOSE TO EXPERIENCE THE ADVENTURE WITH YOUR OWN BIKE.
Due to the geographical aspect of the territory, Wine and Ride recommends booking an E-bike in order to make the most of the experience. The terraces of Lavaux being are shaped by strong differences in altitude, the practice of an E-bike allows the cyclist to enjoy serenely the landscapes by limiting the physical effort to provide.
PREFER A GOURMET OR CLASSIC FORMULA
The full day Gourmande package includes: a sports snack (local seasonal fruit juice, accompanied by a homemade snack with fair trade coffee) and includes a glass of wine and tasting of local products to enjoy at the end of the course.
The sports snack will be maintained in a gourmet formula on a morning circuit, and the drink of friendship in a gourmet formula on an afternoon circuit.
