Eight Great Places to enjoy AIX Rosé in the mountains
With the skiing season in full swing, AIX Rosé takes to the mountains with a list of eight Great Places at great altitudes. Looking for a casual après-ski or a fine dinner to end a day on the slopes? These spots have got you covered.
Le Mouton Noir, Verbier, Switzerland
Situated right next to the ski lift at les Ruinettes, Le Mouton Noir successfully combines a gourmet restaurant with a creative mix of cabaret, music and live entertainment at 2200 meters altitude. And with the largest terrace bar in Verbier comes an unforgettable panorama. The bar serves AIX Rosé by the glass or magnum while the DJ plays the best tunes to light up your après-ski session.
Ajax Tavern, Aspen, Colorado, United States
Ajax Tavern lies directly at the base of Aspen Mountain and next to the Silver Queen gondola. Enjoy lunch or cocktails on the sun-drenched, mountainside patio. The Tavern really comes to life at lunch, and the party rolls on well into the night. So order up a bottle of AIX Rosé and let your après-ski and the people-watching begin. We're pretty sure you'll stick around for a while.
La Cortona, Courchevel, France
Find La Cortona in Courchevel village below the gondolas for some Italian flavours in the mountains. Inspiration ranges from northern Italy through Tuscany and Puglia and translates into pizzas baked on a wood-fired oven or any of the other local specialities and AIX Rosé to go along with it. Perfect to feed your soul after a session on the slopes.
Schmelzhof, Lech, Austria
Schmelzhof is located in Arlberg, consistently ranking among the world’s best ski areas for years now. Here you will find a hotel with lovely rooms and culinary local delights from the kitchen; try the ‘Grandmother’s Breakfast buffet’ for a perfect start of your day. After a day on the slopes, enjoy AIX Rosé from the stocked cellar on the inviting sun terrace and relaxing evenings in front of the open fire.
Chez Vrony, Zermatt, Switzerland
Chez Vrony has been around for over 100 years. The family-run restaurant at 2100 metres altitude offers stunning views of the Matterhorn. Find AIX Rosé among their carefully selected wines, creating the perfect pairing with one of their lovingly prepared local or internationally inspired dishes. From breakfast to après-ski or everything in between, you won’t experience a dull moment at this unique location in one of the world’s best ski areas.
Ellina, Aspen, Colorado, United States
Since 2009, Ellina serves contemporary Italian-American cuisine in the heart of Aspen and is referred to as ‘one of Aspen’s best restaurants’ more and more. Jill Carnevale is the sommelier who curated the wine list boasting over 1500 wines. The staff is helpful to make sure you find a bottle that matches your expectations, but will you really need any advice when you know AIX Rosé is among those 1500 wines?
Le Vieux Chalet, La Clusaz, France
Le Vieux Chalet has been open every winter since 1947. The hotel claims to be the smallest four-star hotel in the world with only six rooms. The restaurant, on the other hand, offers more choices. Choose between the little dining room with its cosy fireplace, the pub saloon complete with old zinc bar, or the sunny terrace with its wood-fired rôtisserie. The quirky interiors go well with the local specialities on offer combined with a glass of AIX Rosé.
Zerodix, Crans-Montana, Switzerland
Right next to the foot of the Cry d’Er telecabine in Crans-Montana you will find Zerodix, where après-ski is taken seriously on a prime location and with a deluxe twist. Zerodix has a restaurant serving international cuisine with a swiss touch. A cosy outside terrace with great sundowners, AIX Rosé on the menu and great DJ’s frequenting the decks will make any experience at Zerodix a pleasant one.
