Wine event at the Matterhorn Plaza

How is the 2015 Pinot Noir from Salgesch?

ATTENTION NEW EVENT DATE: The extremely hot summer of 2015 yielded a fantastic wine. In Switzerland, new red wines usually come onto the market around Christmas time. In Zermatt, on Sunday, 7 August 2016, from 4.45 p.m., there will be a preview tasting of this outstanding vintage. Diego Mathier, the prominent spokesman of the Salgesch vintners, will be bringing a barrique of the 2015 Pinot Noir to the Matterhorn Plaza by horse-drawn carriage.

Connoisseurs of Pinot Noir will be able to have a bottle to take home filled during the event, which is set to take place right in front of the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof. Naturally, the new Pinot Noir from Adrian & Diego Mathier Nouveau Salquenen can also be sampled at the Plaza, right at the foot of the Matterhorn. The weather forecast for 7 August looks excellent.

Die Flaschen werden nummeriert. Das sind Preise dieses limitierten Angebots: Die Flasche (0,75 l) kostet CHF 35.–, die Karaffe (0,5 l) für die Konsumation vor Ort auf der Matterhorn Plaza CHF 22.–.

Sit outside and enjoy delicious fare under the canopy of the summer sky

A fine glass of wine deserves something delicious to eat along with it. On 5 August, just like every other evening, tapas and light bistro dishes such as Alsace tarte flambée will be served on the Plaza. Those craving some tasty Valais cheese will not be disappointed – look out for the raclette and fondue specialities on the “saycheese!” menu.
