Switzerland A Wine Destination

Red or white? That’s just the beginning! Wines of international acclaim abound in Europe, a wonderful destination to plan a wine pilgrimage. See where—and how—your favorite fortified or revered sparkling wines are produced. Learn about the roles that climate and topography play. Go a step further and get acquainted with the spirits made from grapes. And yes, if you visit at the right time of year, you can get “up close and personal” with the vines and understand from experience what it takes to bring in this precious harvest. Wine history goes back thousands of years: some vines are centuries old and still productive! Visit sites where wine and momentous historical events intersect, such as wine cellars that functioned as wartime hospitals. Grape cultivation and wine folklore includes traditional ceremonies, foods, songs, dances, folk tales and festivals. Enjoy stupendous wine scenery on from river cruises to bicycle tours and hot air balloon rides to good old hikes. You’ll never look at a glass of wine the same after experiencing Europe’s wine heritage!
