GRIMENTZ, SWITZERLAND

Ski Holidays in Grimentz

Grimentz has been a hidden gem for a long time but thanks to the new cable car linking with Zinal this traditional village with its blackened wooden grain stores will not be a secret for much longer. The village has its own speciality, vin de glacier, created by pouring the new season’s wine into barrels containing the remnants of older vintages.
