Wine festival on the Herlaimont slag heap!
Discover this vineyard at the heart of Wallonia on the schistose, stony soil of a former colliery. In Herlaimont, the 13, 14, 20 and 21/09/14!
Trees are flourishing on this soil which was reportedly sterile: a real forest of beeches, oaks, pines, poplars and cherry trees are growing vigorously alongside an orchard abounding with peach trees, pear trees, cherry trees and apple trees.
Wine-making activities are part of this region's past: in the 16th century, there was a place called "Le Vignois" at Trazegnies where grape vines grew.
In memory of this local history, the wine produced is labelled "Château de Trazegnies" and features the illustrious family's crest.
Free entry and guided tours.
