Leysin Alpine Village of Taste
During this third edition, producers, craftsmen, shopkeepers and restaurateurs open their doors to share the pleasure of good food and local know-how.
This year Adeline Grüter-Mayor, wine grower and cellar master, will be the patron of the event and will offer her wines during the Week of Taste. For 10 days, Leysenoud restaurants, producers and craftsmen will offer special activities and menus to discover the Leysin local produce.
A new label was born in 2020 in Leysin with the creation of the Rucher de Velard by the Commune of Leysin. It is run by the municipal services. The long-term objective is to turn it into an educational centre.
The Rucher de Velard is located below the village near the Suchet forest, a few minutes' walk from the ice rink. This relaxing place offers a splendid view of the Rhone Valley. In this magnificent natural setting, you can discover the work of the beekeeper and his equipment, as well as the work of the bees.
Since the beginning of the apiary's operation, Laurent Tauxe, also known as Enzo, has been wearing the costume of a beekeeper and takes care of the hives and their inhabitants on a weekly basis, as well as extracting and bottling the honey.
