Food & Wine Tour
Switzerland 2025

Switzerland is a country on almost everyone’s bucket list. Yet the real Switzerland is impossible to discover without insider knowledge. I’m blessed to have seen it as few outsiders can, through the eyes of my Swiss husband and his family and friends. I adore its hearty food, farmhouse stalls and outdoor food markets. And I love its crisp white wines, soft reds, picturesque vineyards and breathtaking scenery. Let me show you the hidden corners of Switzerland that tourists never find.

Fondue - A Month of Swiss Online Cooking Class

Fondue

Cheesemaking, cheese fondue and the best cheese trolleys you’ve ever seen are part of any Swiss food and wine tour. We start ours in a 300-year-old chalet in the Jura mountains with delicious traditional fondue and crisp white wine.

Croissant - Fleur de Farine, Romainmôtier

Delicious Pastries

We'll stay in the pretty village of Romainmôtier, built around a thousand-year-old priory. Dinner is Swiss beef roasted in front of an open fire and the excellent coffee and pastries for breakfast in the local café are a real highlight.

Mont-Vully vineyard, Lake Murten, Fribourg Switzerland

Fish from the Lake

In Fribourg we'll dine on fish fresh from Lake Murten and explore the Medieval old town. We'll visit a lakeside vineyard for a tour and cellar tasting and dine at a Michelin starred family-run auberge.

Canton Bern (Switzerland) - Landgasthof Bären, Sumiswald

Emmenthal

In the Bernese Oberland we'll stay in the ancient Landgasthof Bären in a small village. The breakfast buffet is a feast of cheese, yoghurt and cold cuts from local farms and dairies and dinner features one of the best rösti I've ever had.

Bern Alt Stadt (Bern City Guide)

Bern

The UNESCO-listed old town of Bern retains much of its Medieval charm. A stroll around it feels like a walk through time. From the ornate medieval clock tower, past the Gothic cathedral, to the elaborate 16th century fountains.

Alpine Cheese Making Switzerland

Gruyere

The hilltop town of Gruyere gave its name to one of Switzerland's most famous cheeses. This Medieval town is perfect for a little souvenir shopping and lunch with stunning mountain views. After lunch we'll visit a local artisanal cider maker.

View across Lake Geneva from the Hotel des Trois Couronnes, Vevey (Switzerland)

Lake Geneva

Hotel Trois Couronnes is the place to stay on Lake Geneva, with heart-stopping views of the Savoyan Alps. We'll stroll along the lake front to visit Charlie Chaplin's statue and browse the small shops in the cobbled streets of the old town.

Vaud vineyards – Lake Geneva

Swiss Wines

The vineyards in this region are steeply terraced above the lake. And the small restaurants in the wine villages serve delicious local fare with wonderful views over the vineyards and across the lake to France.

My wife and I recently joined Roberta's Emilia-Romagna tour. We enjoyed all the temptations offered and learned a lot about that part of Italy, especially its food and wine culture. What was most impressive was Roberta's local knowledge of people and places. The planning and effort she put into making the whole experience seem effortless was remarkable.
