SWISS WINES. We carry about a dozen different wines from Switzerland, a wonderful country with an economy which is amazing. We used to go cross-country skiing in the Engadiner Valley and I can say that the price of everything is high. A few years ago a dozen eggs cost something like $!!! Swiss wines are equally pricey. For a surcharge, you can book these meals on SWISS intercontinental flights in Economy Class. Special meals. We are pleased to make arrangements for passengers with special dietary requirements. They are available in all flight classes on all long haul flights and on selected European flights. Please order your special meal in good time.

The Valais is the biggest wine-growing canton with several hundred wine-growers there producing just over two fifths of Swiss wine. The wines in the Valais are made from approximately 50 types of grapes, some of which, such as Petite Arvine, Amigne, Humagne blanc and Humagne rouge and Cornalin, are very ancient and barely known outside the area. Treat yourself to a meal at a traditional Swiss inn, a stylish new place with an urban garden, a fine dining establishment known far beyond the national borders, or a place you might visit on a daytrip with panoramic views of the Alps. Savour the culinary diversity during your stop along the Grand Tour of Switzerland.

  Swiss wine's lack of fame is not due to any lack of quality or quantity, but because it is produced mostly for (and consumed happily by) the Swiss themselves. Things are gradually changing however; the world beyond the Alps is now discovering the high quality of much Swiss Pinot Noir, and white wines made from the national flagship grape. “It’s difficult to export wine because we drink a lot” is the response I got when asking why Swiss wine does not exist on the international market. Switzerland, a tiny independent country in the heart of Europe with a population of million, is divided further by languages; French, Italian, German, and Romanche.
