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 first Salon des Vins et Terroir met with enormous success at the Régent Congress Centre last March, attracting an enthusiastic public that was delighted to become acquainted with 14 wine producers from the Haut Plateau. This event will be held annually. In the meantime, the sunny vineyard-covered hills await admirers of Petite Arvine and other grapes when wine cellars hold open house from 25 to 27 May 2017.
The winegrowers also organise many events 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, enjoy wine tastings and attend Le Temps du Cornalin, an annual event, which takes place on 16 September 2017 in honour of the oldest and most prestigious of the Valais red wines.
