Little interest - so there will be no common event. Pity, but on the other hand I have the day for myself.

Vineyard Path

A thematic walk through the vineyards of Vully, in both cantons Fribourg and Vaud, helps you to understand the different stages involved in wine production.
At first, the 5 km walk climbs through the vines in Sugiez and continues through the vineyards overlooking Nant and Praz to arrive at the pier in Môtier where the boats call. It is of course also possible to go in the other direction.
Sixteen information boards are situated at nine places along the way, chosen for the panoramic view they offer and the space available if you wish to make a break. There, you will find the history of wine-growing in the region, illustrations of the different sorts of grapes grown, explanations about the work at different times of the year and about the stages involved in wine production.

For children, six panels with the mascot “Viny” recount the life of a bunch of grapes and thus how grape juice is made.
