It’s Caves Ouvertes (open wine cellars) on Saturday the 5th and Sunday 6th November in the villages of Begnins, Luins, Vinzel and Luins. There will be wine tasting and an opportunity to taste “Le Bourru”. This is the new wine at the end of its first fermentation. For just CHF 15, visitors can have access to all the wine cellars that are taking part in the weekend including the wine tastings too! There will also be a free “navette” (bus) that will leave Gland railway station to take visitors between the various cellars and a “petit train” will also be in operation. Full details here and in the video below (in French with English subtitles).

La Roulotte to stay open until Christmas!
La Roulotte, the old railway carriage behind Nyon station that operates as a café, usually opens in Spring and closes down in October, but this year, the staff have decided to keep the café going until Christmas! Blankets and candles will be provided at the tables for customers if it is particularly cold and hot meals and hot drinks will be served.
