This was a fun activity that we discovered while reading through the TA forum. After reading some reviews, we began our planning by contacting the Montreux Tourist office and requested info: http://www.montreuxriviera.com They were very generous in sending maps of vineyard and other local walks, a listing of wine caves and the hours, even a beautiful small poster of the riviera. Although the walk through the vineyard would probably be spectacular in the autumn, nonetheless, it was still beautiful on a sunny day in July. A few things to keep in mind: not all of the wine caves are open on the same day, and many do not even open up until late afternoon or early evening. In some areas, the trails are not as well marked as we were led to believe. We started our walk at the beautiful little village of Chardonne and headed west. Unfortunately, we got a bit lost on some of the trails near there; things don't seem as well marked there as they were over by Rivaz. We eventually ended in Rivaz, via Chexbres, and could not find an open wine cellar at 1700 in the afternoon. All in all, it was a fun and beautiful experience; however, if I were to do it again, I would follow TA area expert Swandev's posts for more specific tips and direction guidelines. That was our original plan,....but as best laid plans go. We did happen to be in Lutry the previous day when the wine cave opened, Caveau des vignerons de Lutry, and spent a couple of indulgent hours enjoying the local atmosphere. If you're not up for the walk, (ours was a 3 hour one), you could just travel by train and explore some of the small villages.
