September 14 2019 – The Time of Cornalin

Crans-Montana and the Valais region is well-known for its excellent wines that are highly regarded, but hard to source outside of Switzerland.

But every year the region celebrates its oldest and most prestigious red wine: the Cornalin. The hamlet of Flanthey, home of Cornalin, invites members of the public to discover local wines and regional food products, including wild game and mountain cheese raclette with Cornalin bread, during this one day festival.

Both wine tasting (purchase a refillable glass for CHF 20 per person) and buying is possible, in a relaxed environment that includes live music, games and a children’s play area.

    Company Information

    Crans-Montana is a chic and stylish all-year-round mountain resort located in the Valais canton of Switzerland (French speaking), around two hours by train from Geneva Airport.

    The resort is part of the Best of the Alps group (bestofthealps.com).

    Two towns, Crans and Montana, merge together to form the resort and both have their own identities. Sitting on a high plateau above the Rhone Valley and facing south, the views are spectacular, especially from higher altitudes where it’s possible to see Mont Blanc in the west, through to the Matterhorn and way beyond to the east. During the winter, the skiing is well suited for intermediates, with a wide range of blue and red runs, but there’s excellent beginners areas as well as some more challenging slopes for experts, including some interesting off-piste and ski touring terrain. During summer, the resort is a haven for both road cyclists and mountain bikers as well as hikers and adventure seekers. Accommodation is varied, with a strong luxury element including several 5* hotels and a spread of 3* and 4* options as well as self-catering apartments and B&B’s.
