Notes   Original linen backed vintage poster for The Fête des Vignerons is a traditional festival which takes place in Vevey, in Switzerland. The festival began in 1797 by the brotherhood of winegrowers (Confrérie des Vignerons). A very unique festival because it is only held a maximum number of 5 times in a century. (The next festival will be in 2019; the previous one was 1999). The festival features a show celebrating the world of winemaking; many performances take place in the market place near the shore of Lake Geneva, and festivities also take place in the town itself. The image of a woman with her hat containing all the festivies of the wine event. The Swiss alps are showing in small in the background.
