Visit France & the Swiss Riviera on the same tour

This area of Europe is known for its spectacular panoramas but very few know that wine is made in both regions.

Our 9 day tour will help you discover the unheralded gems of the Jura region of France and neighboring Switzerland.

The Jura’s claim to fame is vin jaune: very rare, expensive and difficult to find in the U.S. Likewise for wines from Switzerland: rare is the restaurant or wine shop that stocks Fendant or Chasselas.

We’ll do our best to help you discover the beauties of both areas as well as their wines. When we return home on May 21, you’ll have visions of the Swiss Riviera on your mind.
