Hike the Chemin du Vignobale, a pedestrian wine trail that stretches for 65 kilometers (40 miles) from Martigny to Loèche, Switzerland. It crosses idyllic vineyards and small wine-producing villages and towns where you can sample delicious, sustainably produced wines like those produced by Marie-Thérèse Chappaz. The Chemin du Vignoble is famed not just for its traditional terraced vineyards but also for its beautiful natural landscapes, dry stack stone walls, limestone cliffs, and old bisses (irrigation channels).
The Valais vineyards cover more than 100 kilometers (62 miles) along the Rhône Valley at an altitude of 270 and 1,100 meters. The dry, sunny climate and diverse soils promise a surprisingly rich palette for well-known Petite Arvine, Cornalin, and Heida wines.
