The Lavaux-Payerne Must Trail celebrates the grape harvest and showcases wines from the renowned vineyards of Vaud. Autumn fair and other animations are not to be missed!
Every first weekend of October horse-drawn wagons make their way from the vineyards of Lavaux to Payerne, bearing a precious liquid cargo, the first pressings of the freshly harvested grapes.
Driven by Daniel Jomini since 1996, this cavalcade follows the route taken by drivers and their steeds in days of old. Over the course of the two-day journey, the wagons will stop off at villages along the way, giving locals an opportunity to sample the produce of Payerne’s vineyards.
Pumpkin carving and decoration workshops for children will be taking place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.; those for adults from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Musical entertainment, refreshments, donkey rides and a petting zoo all day long.
