Artisanal cheese and wine makers present their preciosities made in the mountains


Mountains consist not only of rocks and snow and the weather is not always rough and unpredictable. Mountains sometimes create micro climates that allow, together with the pristine air, water and soil, the cultivation of amazing quality wines. That perfectly fits to the world-renowned Swiss cheese culture! Come and taste it!

If you have 1 child (up to 16 yrs) it will pay as per 1 adult.
