Valais Museum of Wine and Winegrowing

The 400 year old Zumofen house is situated in the heart of the old village. Since the middle ages, the residents have adapted to ever-changing needs. The barn and stable remind us that prior to the winemaking monoculture people's lives as well as the landscape at Salgesch were centred around animal husbandry and agriculture. The 6 km long wine theme trail runs to the Château de Villa in Sierre.

Two sites, one museum - Sierre and Salgesch - linked between them by the wine-growing path.

Sierre - Ollon - St. Léonard

The landscape of Lower Valais is defined by vineyards on the valley slopes and orchards in the basin of the Rhone Valley. The same is true for Sierre and Sion. On the southern slopes every square meter is used for viticulture.

The landscape of Lower Valais is defined by vineyards on the valley slopes and orchards in the basin of the Rhone Valley. The same is true for Sierre and Sion. On the southern slopes every square meter is used for viticulture. In the background rise the imposing Valaisian Alps. The hike from Sierre to St. Léonard offers many interesting vistas.
