Touring Geneva’s vineyards by tuk-tuk
Swiss wine is a highlight of any visit to the country, not least because Switzerland exports virtually no wine, making these bottles of chasselas and merlots a rare limited-edition pleasure only obtainable within Swiss borders. Seek them out on a wine tour around the picturesque town of Peissy by tuk-tuk, driven by Sébastien Roevens of Welo, who runs sustainable wine, street art and history tours of the city. At Domaine Les Perrierès, Frédéric Rochaix, part of the eighth generation of winemakers at this family-run winery, will expertly give you the lowdown on the astonishing variety of wines on offer, which includes pinot noirs, chardonnays, merlots and gamays. Don't miss a visit to the deservedly popular local haunt Café de Peney for elevated takes on classic Swiss food such as roast venison, rösti and spätzli (which translates literally as "little sparrows", made from dumpling batter).
