Fête des Vignerons: Reunion

On Sunday 04.08.2019, around 40 former Expo.02 employees gathered at the Fête des Vignerons 2019 in Vevey. Frédéric Hohl, Executive Director of the Fête des Vignerons 2019, offered us a nice aperitif followed by a presentation and an exclusive visit backstage. We were spoiled with some nice meetings over a drink. And above all, we were able to share our memories, news and had interesting discussions. What a great reunion!

The Fête des Vignerons pays tribute to the centuries-old winegrowing traditions of an entire region through a show and the crowning of the winegrowers. Organised by the Confrérie des Vignerons, this unique celebration takes place once a generation in Vevey, a town located in the heart of the Lavaux vineyards in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland.
