Well I was shocked to hear that Montreux even had snow this early in the winter and think they rarely do so they would not leave the grapes on for a remote chance they may freeze on the wine - and a bit of snow does not automatically mean the grapes would freeze.

Consider the lakefront town of Brunnen.
We stayed there last month (October 12), and it has good transport connections, many restaurants and cafes, several very fine hotels.
Brunnen is 45 minutes by train to Luzern and just one hour to Zurich, so Pilatus and Rigi are quite do-able (we did both).>

Yes indeedy - I also found Brunnen - just from a few-hour poke about to be a really neat lakeside town on one of the prettiest parts of Lake Lucerne - with mainline train service to Lucerne/Zurich or Lugano as well as boats around the lake. Opposite Brunnen I think is the famous meadow where the Swiss Federation began - Rutli or some such name - can take a boat there and walk up to the high up meadow where it all began.
