Caves Ouvertes 2015

Last weekend the canton of Vaud celebrated its Caves Ouvertes, a wonderful festival of the opening of more than 300 wine cellars along the lake. We decided to wander over to the neighbouring village of Fechy to visit the ten wineries there. We bought our "wine passport" - a Vins Vaudois wine glass and pouch for 15 francs - and then enjoyed unlimited tastings at the various cellars. There were free shuttle buses across the whole canton and within Fechy there was a charming little shuttle train to ferry the merry-makers up and down the hill.
