Visit to the Wine Museum

Valais has been a wine-growing region for thousands of years and is noted for the diversity of its wines. In its permanent exhibition, the Wine Museum in Salgesch retraces the history of this exceptional wine production, nourished by tradition and passion. During your visit, you will discover the secrets of winemaking and the methods – steeped in tradition – adopted by the vintners of Valais. Step back in time, follow the changes in local customs, the landscape and the tools used for cultivating grapes. This space was lovingly renovated in 2015; it presents a wide-ranging and lively panorama of Valais’s wine-growing and producing heritage. Duration: 1 hour.
