Lavaux is so wonderful, I hope you'll have clear weather so you can see the panorama view :)
You can wander from village to village, we have a recommended route description here: www.myswissalps.com/hiking/lutry-epesses. Because Covid wine cellars have modified quite a lot of their opening times, I would recommend searching on the internet and contacting them in advance. I can recommend this cellar, one of the oldest winemakers in the region: closdelarepublique.ch/ And I've also heard great things about this restaurant: www.aubergeduvigneron.ch/ I do not think that drop-in would be good, I've tried once, I could barely find a place being open.
You can read about the Lavaux Express and the Wine Train here: www.myswissalps.com/activities/culinary/dineonthemove (under "Special culinary rides, trains and wagons"). (But maybe you'll find this one also a bit touristy, I am not sure).
My fav route is: from Lausanne to Vevey by boat. (You can already have a glass of wine on the boat while you are admiring the view and the vineyards.) From Vevey take the train to the Lavaux area (I prefer Chexbres). Walk in and around the Lavaux vineyard. Take a train back to Lausanne.
One more thing. There is little shadow during the walk, so make sure to bring some sun protection in case it is sunny.
