Freddie Tour (Premium)

Explore the Lavaux region and its vineyards, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and produce some of Switzerland's most excellent wines.

Book your tour

In an exceptional setting overlooking Lake Geneva, accompanied by Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury's personal assistant for more than 10 years, we will spend the evening on the property of the family Bovy that has been producing the award-winning St-Saphorin wine for three generations.

Peter Freestone confirms: Freddie Mercury loved this wine so much that he went against the advice that Swiss wines do not travel. Indeed, he had numerous cases delivered to Garden Lodge (his London home)!

It is in an intimate atmosphere that you will taste and learn more about the making of this exceptional wine that Freddie particularly appreciated.
