||What's one thing the public probably
does NOT know about Switzerland?
is often referred as Switzerland's best-kept secret, as the quality
and standards are high, but many wines do not get beyond the borders
of the local villages. Switzerland's best-known wines come from the
steeply terraced vineyards of the Valais and the Lake Geneva Region.

stretching for about 18 miles along the south-facing northern shores
of Lake Geneva from the Chateau de Chillon to the eastern outskirts
of Lausanne in the Lake Geneva Region, are a UNESCO site.
