Grimentz, in the Val d’Anniviers is a typical Valais village in the architecture of another era. The small wooden mazots surround a narrow alley, or markets and parties know how to make the whole soul of the village. A place of culture and traditions, Grimentz is an authentic village where balconies are each year of the most beautiful geraniums, like to celebrate the summer and its traditions. Discover the “wine of the glacier”: its strong and persistent taste and its atypical origin make it an exceptional wine. The “Wine of the glaciers”, a mythical wine derived from the ancestral tradition, is an integral part of the Anniviard heritage.
Located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Grimentz is nevertheless connected to the Swiss public transport network.
Only 35 km separates the typical village of Sion airport, where regular flights serve Zurich or London. Grimentz is equipped with a helicopter-port that allows for the fastest flight from the plain.
