My Heart Was Made To Travel

Chocolate, Cheese and a Castle

SWITZERLAND | Sunday, 3 July 2016 | Views [303] | Comments [1]

July 3rd

Off to Gruyere we went. First stop the Cailler Chocolate Factory. The tour was a fun and interesting walk through the history of the Cailler and Nestle brand.  After a Willy Wonka like beginning we then got to venture thru watching the production line of one of their signature chocolates. It was on to my favorite part, the tasting room. We got to taste quite a few of the signature pieces they make. 

Onto the Chateaux de Gruyeres on top of the hill. Another castle full of history and some spectacular views of Switzerland. The gardens were lovely to walk thru. 

The final stop was La Maison du Gruyere Cheese Factory. Cherry the Cow was our lovely audio tour guide. She guided us through the process from the fields to the cheese production. It was pretty cute and interesting





Katy! This all looks so Heavenly! :-)
I hope that you are having the time of your life!
