Wine Museum, Salgesch: vines and wine in Valais, their story!
Learn the secrets of making wines in Valais, while visiting an authentic grower and wine producer’s house, recently renovated. Valais has been a wine-producing area for millennia, noted for the quality and variety of its wines. Walking through the 13 rooms of the museum you will explore all the aspects of this exceptional heritage: the knowledge and skills of grower-producers, the role played by terroirs, harvest time, cellar secrets, ways of drinking, the image of wine and the art of tasting.
This trip through the heart of vine and wine country is accompanied by objects and images that show the labour needed and work methods, from past to present. The exhibition, with its educational displays and scientifically-based lighting, is designed to appeal to both knowledgeable wine fans and curious visitors who want to better know the region. A children’s scavenger hunt is also available.
