Caveau des Vignerons

Swiss traditional cuisine in the old town of Montreux, at 30bis Rue Industrielle (but the entrance is around the corner, at Rue du Marché). The typical winegrower vault, built around 1900, was hosting a theatre at the time. It's a mythical place, very picturesque, which opens in case of affluence or for groups. The other room (the modern one) is open 7 days a week.

The Winegrowers' Vault

The "Caveau des Vignerons" was reconstructed in what used to be a winegrowers' cellar where the winegrowers used to make their wine. In autumn, once gathered and pressed, the grapes give a sweet juice which, after fermentation and vinification in large oak barrels, develop into a dry white or red wine, characteristic of this region.

The "pressoir" (grapes press), a majestic instrument, reigned over this old place. We converted its wood into the heavy table tops of our wine cellar. The hunting scene above the fire place was carved by a Montreux artisan, Pierre Cochard. On the walls, drawings of a winegrower and of a peasant girl in traditional costume perpetuate the atmosphere of days gone by...
