Indeed, the municipality of Salgesch was the first in Valais to introduce the requirements of a Grand Cru label for its Pinot Noir. That was in 1988.
In 2015, and because of its larger area, the region of Sierre joined the classification, accompanied by some of the neighbouring municipalities (Crans-Montana, Lens, Miège, Venthône and Veyras).
