Route Description for Wine Press Trail
Setting out from the trailhead, the Wine Press Trail will lead you through the narrow streets of Ollon, allowing you to relive the memories of a village community through their stories and heritage. The granite wine presses along the route, remnants of a time long ago, tell an important part of Valais’ winegrowing history. The trail loops back around through the village to bring you back to the starting point of your walk.
