Located 8 km south Namur, Wépion is the Belgian's strawberry capital. Située à 8km au sud de Namur, Wépion est la capital Belge de la fraise

The strawberry has been cultivated there for more than 150 years because Wépion benefits from a micro-climate, sun-exposed plantations on west sloping ground and has a perfect ground for this type of culture.

It produces a strawberry beer under the brand name La Wépionnaise.
