Deep in the Calfeisental lies the charming, former Walser hamlet of St. Martin. It is as though time has stood still here and you feel as though you are in an open-air museum.

Winemaking in the Bündner Herrschaft

Winemaking in the Bündner Herrschaft has a long tradition. Schloss Salenegg in Maienfeld is documented as the oldest vineyard in Europe. Wine was already being made here as far back as 1068. At first mostly white wines were produced but today it is the red wines which are internationally known. Red wines only started to be produced in the 17th century, when the Blauburgunder (Pinot Noir) from France found its way here. Today around 350 hectares of vines are cultivated.
