Great Valais Wine Trip
It will be a once-in-a-lifetime gourmet trip aboard an MGB Railway panorama coach. Following the aperitif we serve a carefully created 5-course dinner with the best wines to complement each dish. On each trip one winery in Valais is responsible for providing the wines and the representative is more than happy to give background information on all their noble wines. On the return journey cheese, dessert, coffee and pastries are served.
Catering Gaumenzauber on board
The well-known Upper Valais catering service ‘Gaumenzauber’ (Palate Magic) guarantees a perfect dinner at your seat. Norbert Schwery and his team recently cooked for the new Federal Assembly member, Viola Amherd, at her reception in the Simplon Halle in Brig.
Every trip has an excitingly different menu accompanied by the perfect wines.
Tour of Disentis village
During the 90-minute stop in Disentis guests have the chance to visit this historic village with a local, knowledgeable guide. The village tour is included in the price. Disentis in the Surselva region has 2,000 inhabitants and is overlooked by an imposing Benedictine Monastery.
Wine & Dine informations
We recommend booking in good time (at least 4 days in advance). Should the minimum number of guests not be reached we regret that we will have to cancel the trip. Guests with reservations will be duly informed.
The MG Railway works with the following wineries in Valais:
Les Fils de Charles Favre
For over 70 years we have distinguished ourselves through our excellent wines. Our winery was founded in 1944 by Charles, René-Pierre, Hanny and Jean-Pierre Favre, and we continue their unique legacy with passion. The ageing of wine is an art that requires great commitment, passion and creativity. This conviction led to the creation of our Dame de Sion, Hurlevent, Collection F and Favi wine ranges, which brilliantly combine the diversity and complexity of Valais grape varieties.
