For a day of gourmet food and gourmet wandering, check out the annual Gourmet Route, which is basically a pilgrimage walk through the vineyards of Montreux-Vevey. The walk begins in Chailly-sur-Montreux, and stops off at several other vineyards where renowned chefs serve up local and international specialties and regional wines. Situated near Lake Geneva, the event draws over 2,000 wine lovers from across Europe and beyond. Finishing all five kilometers of the Gourmet Route requires temperance, think of it as a marathon not a sprint.
