Tasting tour in the vineyards of Martigny

Important information

Walk of 6km, 200m of positive and negative altitude difference.

For people from 16 years old. Minimum 4 participants required.

Description

We will meet at the Bâtiaz bridge in Martigny, at the foot of the vineyard, where Katrin Weber, a mountain guide and heritage guide who has been active in the vineyard for many years, will welcome you and accompany you on a walk along the terraced vineyard path.

Between the Bâtiaz castle and the small hamlet of Plan Cerisier with its old mazots, you will discover the richness of this vineyard: its geology, its dry stone walls, its terraces planted with different grape varieties which, in autumn, resemble a magnificent colourful patchwork.

You will also learn more about the work of the winegrowers and of course taste some magnificent wines specially selected for the occasion: the favourites of Sarah Besse, organic winegrower and member of "Slow Wine". You will be able to see the very plots where the vines at the origin of the wines tasted are located, and, why not, taste these wines directly on the spot, or next to one of these famous booths. 

Services included:

  • Activity of about 3.5 hours (walking time: 2 hours) accompanied by a mountain guide

  • Discovery of the Martigny vineyards via the Bâtiaz castle and the hamlet of Plan Cerisier

  • Guided tasting of 4 wines in the vineyards of the "Slow Wine" winemaker Sarah Besse

Not included:

  • Personal insurance (cancellation/assistance)

  • Other drinks (except tasting), snacks.

For people from 16 years old. Minimum 4 participants required.

This activity takes a maximum of 4 hours. Possibility to shorten, according to the wishes of the group.
