15 June Lavaux Walk & Wine

Lausanne / 15:00 - 20:00

Walk & Wine, Lavaux
Saturday, 15 June 2024

Join your fellow INSEAD alumni for an awe-inspiring, yet easy-paced walk through the unique Lavaux vineyards. We will be guided by professional English and French speaking tour guides from the region who will have many a story to tell. We will end the walk with a fabulous wine-tasting and appetisers in the stunning setting of the terrace of Domaine de La Crausaz, a 509-year old winery in Grandvaux.

Listed as a UNESCO cultural heritage site since 2007, the vineyards between Lutry and Vevey have been shaped by human hands since the 11th century. Boasting 10,000 terraces, interwoven with viticulture paths and dotted with wine-producing villages, the site has retained its authenticity and integrity, offering an architectural heritage of an exceptional richness and diversity.

  
Programme 

15:00: Arrival and welcome at Maison Lavaux, Grandvaux

Address of the meeting point:
Maison Lavaux
Sentier des Vinches 2
1091 Grandvaux

 
15:30–17:30: Guided walk (Please indicate your preference (or not) for an English- or French-speaking tour guide). We will go in groups of 16, and end the walk at Maison Lavaux, where we started, and a 5 minute walk from the Domaine de la Crausaz winery.

Please note: We cannot enter the winery before 18:00 because they are hosting a wedding until then, so this will allow those interested to quickly visit the Maison Lavaux 3-room “museum.” Meanwhile, the others can rest, or walk slowly together to the Domaine de La Crausaz.  
 
18:00–20:00: Tasting of 3 wines from Domaine de La Crausaz together with some cheese and charcuterie on a terrace overlooking Lake Geneva. Address: Chemin de la Creuse 9, 1091 Grandvaux.
