Our offers on oenology

Go to the Abbaye de Salaz to discover tasty grape varieties and learn more about wine during a tasting with Janine Huber.

Clearly, the world of wine now also belongs to women. And that's good, because they bring a new vision or new ideas.
Janine Huber

They are high-level athletes, winegrowers or mountain refuge keepers... The investment they dedicate to their activity is limitless. The passion that motivates them as well as their know-how is strength that each of them shares in their own way.

We wanted to know their daily life as well as the relationship they have with their job. Are mountain sports still considered masculine? What qualities are essential to the practice of their profession?

Their portrait and their experience as women in professions (too) long considered as masculine are bearers of hope to inspire a new generation of women to take up challenges and push their limits!

Visit the four corners of the Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets-Bex destination to meet these women who inspire us!
