Visit #Jura3Lakes on

Vineyard museum of the Lake of Biel (Fornel)

"If you like to spend a little time enjoying a glass of fine wine, I think you're bound to appreciate a visit to this museum which presents methods of wine-growing, the tools and equipment required for it and also the profession of the cooper, which was a closed book to me. My visit gave me a better understanding of the passion that motivates these craftsmen. The house that hosts the museum is one of the loveliest residences on the left shore of Lake Biel."
