The Roman soldiers did not only bring war. The Romans brought oil, wine, pottery, metal and spices to the region. They introduced a new language and civilization as well as a new culture. With their arrival, the first grapevines appeared, which were cultivated along the banks of the Rhone River. Only in the 3rd century did viticulture spread readily in the Valais – thanks to Christianity. To celebrate the Mass and Communion, wine was necessary. Many vineyards owe their existence to the monks of the large monasteries, who cleared the soil, planted, harvested and produced wine.
