Wine tourism

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 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.



An ephemeral feast by a  "bisse"

This event, in the Guest Tables series, is an invitation to treat your taste buds in an unusual location.
