Switzerland is a beautiful country.

The canton/region of Valais is the heart of the Swiss Alps.

The small city of Sion is the center of  Valais.

A cobbled climb leads upwards to the twin hills in the center of the old city: on one an old castle and on the other an old church.

Fendant and Johannisburg: local wines that are not to be missed.

🙁

The local folk obviously value their wine.
