Fine Art, Regional Food and Wines, the Spectacular Swiss Alps

By Gian Carlo Casparis

Wine Tours Switzerland is pleased to partner with Bad RagARTz to bring to our clients a great art + food + wine experience in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland.

Werner Zemp-w800-h800Every three years, the Bad RagARTz Festival of Sculpture returns to the Grisons and St. Gallen Rhine Valley, hosting about 400 sculptures as permanent guests in public areas from May to November.   The Festival returns again this year, creating Europe’s largest Sculpture Park.

Entry is free. The special feelings one has when strolling through a landscape transformed by art are part of the secret of success behind Bad RagARTz. The experience of traveling into an emotional conversation with art in a small town has a special charm. This is particularly true as nature changes from summer to autumn. Color and light suddenly unfold within the mountain world and have a very special effect on the sculptures. 400,000 visitors experienced this for themselves three years ago.

This year, Wine Tours Switzerland is joining with the town of Bad Ragaz and the Bad RagARTz Festival to offer their unique food and wine experiences.  Discover and enjoy specialties of the Grisons, starting with award-winning wines.

According to Gian Carlo Casparis, owner and founder of Wine Tours Switzerland:

“Graubunden’s regional wines are a specialty and the focus of our tours because so few people know how spectacular that are.  For instance, we often sample the awarded Pinot Noir from Sprecher von Bernegg, of Jenins, Switzerland, an amazing wine.”

Bündnerfleisch

Also served:

  •       Bündnerfleisch – top quality Grisons beef air dried in the high-mountains for eight to twelve weeks.    A rare and expensive delicacy not to be missed.
  •       Matured mountain cheeses from Maedris.
  •       And a tour favorite, Gian Carlo’s exclusive, homemade Bündner Birnbrot Chutney – a local traditional pear bread stuffed with dried pears, raisins, walnuts  raisins, apples, figs, and other dried fruit.
