The final parade. In the scene are the 5,500 extras who gave a year of their lives to present you this phenomenal show! (photo: FEVI)
This Winemakers' Festival takes place only four or five times per century, so it is essential not to miss this cultural and highly technical event. Emma Husson, an SLU contributor who was part of this Swiss adventure, tells us about it from the inside in two installments.
That's it, it's done. 2019 will remain a legendary year for our Swiss friends, at least for the Veveysans, the inhabitants of the Lavaux vineyards, situated in the canton of Vaux. But where did they get the idea of organizing the festival once every generation?
And what a festival it is! It's one of excess, which, since its creation in 1797 and only four or five times a century, has given rhythm to the life of the winegrowers who work there, rewarding them for their hard work.
