The pearl of the Alpine wines comes from Europe's highest vineyard. The vineyard terraces lie close to each other in rows on the southern slope, below the Heida village of Visperterminen. The Valais sun ripens the special grapes that yield a special wine.
In the middle of September, around 340 cows descend from the Alpine pastures of Dürrenwald after the summer months - adorned with flowers and ribbons. Accompanied by the farmers and their owherds, they are welcomed back into the village of St. Stephan by spectators from near and far.
