Description of the activity
Walk in the Villeneuve vineyards and cheese fondue on the way.
On the programme
Discovery of the vineyards of Villeneuve with fondue on the way (Rando-fondue)
This walk is done ALONE but it is organised by the Domaine Bertholet, a family business of winegrowers and winemakers for 4 generations.
The walk starts at the Domaine Bertholet cellar in the centre of the village of Villeneuve. After a visit of the cellar (approx. 30 min.) (tasting of 3 wines possible for an extra 12.- Fr. per person), we will give you the map of the walk and the key to the vineyard.
A regular climb will take you through the more or less steep vineyards of Villeneuve. After an hour's walk (quite steep), you will reach the capite in the vineyards where you can prepare your own fondue (ACCORDING TO THE RECIPE given to you) accompanied by the white wine "Chasselas" of the Domaine.
From this place, you will enjoy a beautiful view of the lake over the vineyard.
When you feel like it, you will reach the start in 3/4 of an hour.
*The start of the experience is either at 10:30 for lunch or at 16:30 for dinner.
*You will need good walking shoes (and in winter a torch for the return journey in the evening)
