Tasting at the Domaine Bertholet cellar, then a stroll through the vineyards of Villeneuve with fondue on the way.
This walk is done alone but it is organised by the Domaine Bertholet, a family business of wine-growers for 4 generations.
The experience starts at the Domaine Bertholet cellar in the centre of the village of Villeneuve with a visit to the cellar with the winemaker and the tasting of 3 wines (approx. 60 min.)
Then we will give you the plan of the walk, the key to the capite in the vines and all the ingredients to prepare the fondue (recipe, cheese, bread, garlic, pepper, wine and kirsch).
A regular ascent will make you discover the more or less sloping vineyards of Villeneuve. After a good hour's walk (quite steep and know how to read a map.... for the route), you will reach the terrace in the vineyards where you can prepare your own fondue accompanied by the white wine "Chasselas La Muraz" from the Domaine.
From here you will enjoy, while eating and tasting a good glass of chasselas, a beautiful view of the lake beyond the vineyard. When your heart tells you, you will reach the departure point in a small ¼ hour. * There is also the possibility to reach the capite by car without doing the walk.
The start of the experience is either at 10.30 am for lunch or at 4.30 pm for dinner (count min. 3 hrs.)
You should bring good walking shoes. *It is also possible to reach the Capite by car without taking the walk.
