This will be the 30th year for the Geneva wineries open house day – the canton was the first to hold the event, which has gradually spread throughout the country, with larger cantons holding open house weekends. Geneva’s remains a festive, more intimate affair, with crowds able to easily move from one winery to another in the region.
The first of the spring cantonal wine open house weekends (Geneva is the 20th, but just for a day) in French-speaking Switzerland, over the long weekend at the end of May, offers a chance to sample many newly bottled wines. 230 wineries, 11:00-19:00.
Canton Vaud hosts its official canton-wide open house 3-4 June, from 10:00 to 17:00, in most wineries. Note that some wineries also hold their own open days, with dates and details listed on the Vins Vaudois web site. Details for the cantonal weekend will be added as they appear.
