A region of first-class vineyards
Crans-Montana’s fame is well established as a gastronomic destination with two star-rated chefs, high-quality local specialities and a wide range of exotic cuisine. At the same time, Crans-Montana is also a high-quality wine-producing region and wine tourism is growing in importance.
The Salon des Vins et Terroir is taking place each year in March at the Régent Congress Centre. The event attracts an enthusiastic public, delighted to become acquainted with 14 wine producers from the Haut Plateau. In springtime, it’s the sunny vineyard-covered hills that welcome admirers of Petite Arvine and other grapes when wine cellars hold open house at the end of May. In September, “Le Temps du Cornalin” invites to honour the oldest and most prestigious of the Valais red wines in the village of Flanthey.
The winegrowers also organise many events all over the year right in their vineyards to help you discover their world of epicurean pleasures. You can participate in the grape harvests, visit the Château de Vaas or enjoy various wine tastings.
