We had a three day weekend due to a public holiday on Monday. The second in two weeks, which is entirely welcome! Friday we went to drinks after work in the city of Neuchâtel for a co-worker’s going away. Saturday we did some errands then met up with our friend Kevin for drinks and dinner.
Sunday was the Caves Ouvertes Vaudois, which is the open wine cellar day in the entire canton of Vaud (our state/province in Switzerland). We targeted Lavaux, and walked from Cully to Rivaz. The deal is similar to the Chardonne caves ouvertes we visited last Fall (see post) but was for a much bigger area. We paid CHF 20 for our wine passport which included a glass, a map, and allowed us to wander from cellar to cellar to taste the local wines.
It was a beautiful spring day and there were tons of people out. Eventually we bought a bottle of wine we liked and sat on the wall of a vineyard drinking wine, eating cheese and bread and taking in the view.
Monday we strapped on our hiking boots for the first time since last Fall! We went to the town of Les Plans-sur-Bex. It was a crisp, Spring day and absolutely beautiful!
