Even the Romans loved the wine from the Bündner Herrschaft (Graubünden’s Rhine Valley). The sought-after, characteristic Pinot Noir, however, did not become endemic until the beginning of the 17th century.
Every weekend from April to November wine growers of the Maienfeld Wine Association take turns in serving guests in their wine cellars and introducing them to their products and work.
Maienfeld in the Bündner Herrschaft inspired the poetess Johanna Spyri to write her novels about Heidi. The hiking trail takes you through the vineyards to Heidi Land.
