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.

The MG Railway works with the following wineries in Valais:  

St. Jodern Kellerei, Visperterminen

For 30 years the cooperative St. Jodern Kellerei has been able to offer wines from the highest vineyard in Europe. Come and enjoy a glass of our Heida wine.

Maison Gilliard

The Maison Gilliard has symbolised the family tradition since 1885 and, through its wines, the faithful expression of the Valais terroir.

Maison Gilliard is characterized by its know-how, its traditional values and its experience. She relies on her heritage to offer her clients a unique experience. Notoriety of the House is based on renowned wines, the popularity of which has long exceeded the Valais borders.

Fernand Cina, Salgesch

Our family business was founded in 1956 by Fernand Cina in Salgesch. In 1987 we were able to take over the growing winery from our father. Through much diligence and care in the vineyards, the passion and love for the grapes, our work has been rewarded in recent years. Many wines have been crowned with national and international awards. Our winery is known for its wide range of specialities. We cultivate an extraordinarily large number of grape varieties on 18 hectares of our own vineyard land, which enables us to offer around 40 different wines.
We look forward to your visit in Salgesch.
Manfred and Damian Cina

Domaines Chevaliers, Salgesch

Home. History. Workplace. Centre.

Our winery is our life. This sun-drenched place in the Salgesch vineyards inspires us every day. Patrick Z'Brun and his team have been filling this noble winery with new spirit since 2008 - a great legacy: Vins des Chevaliers once flew out into the world on board Swissair. Drive, ideas, entrepreneurial spirit and, above all, enthusiasm for wine: Patrick Z'Brun, another lateral thinker, is now on board. One who knows the roots for which he is developing visions together with his team. A good wine, like a loving home, has a soul. Both can be experienced happier if we share them with others. The doors of the Domaines Chevaliers are open to you. 

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.
