The Wine Museum is unusual in that it is divided into two spaces, one in Sierre and the other in Salgesch.
The latter, which was completely renovated in 2015, presents a complete, living panorama of the Valais tradition of wine-growing and wine-making. As you walk around the Museum’s 13 rooms, you will be able to explore all the facets of an exceptional heritage: the wine-growers’ expertise, the role of terroirs, the harvest times, the secrets of cellaring, the drinking styles, the art of tasting and the profile our wine has.
You’ll experience this journey to the centre of the vine and wine in the company of artefacts and images that illustrate the techniques and practices of both the past and the present. With its playful staging and scientific explanations, the exhibition appeals to both wine enthusiasts and visitors keen to learn more about the region.
The other exhibition space, in Sierre, is dedicated to temporary exhibitions.
This year, it holds the exhibition ‘Forain for ever 1 - L’épopée des vignerons-nomades’ (the epic of the nomadic wine-growers), open until 30 November 2017.
The Wine Museum retraces the history of this exceptional mountain viticulture, sustained by tradition and passion. During your visit, you will discover the secrets of wine-making and the traditional practices of the wine-grower. Go back in time, follow the evolution of customs, landscapes and wine-related artefacts.
