A region of first-class vineyards
Crans-Montana’s reputation is well established as a gastronomic destination with two star-rated chefs, high-quality local specialities and a wide range of exotic cuisine. However, it is important to remember that Crans-Montana is also a first-rate wine region and that wine tourism is becoming increasingly important
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 lovers of Petite Arvine and other grapes when wine cellars hold open house at the end of May. And in September, epicureans are invited to take part in the Temps du Cornalin, an event that each year celebrates the oldest and most prestigious red wine in the Valais
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 Castle of Vaas or enjoy various wine tastings.
