Wine aficionados, foodies and anyone who appreciates a good glass of wine before a meal, with a meal or after a meal, get ready for the 15th annual Expovina PRIMAVERA. This wine fair in the Giessereihalle at PULS 5 in Zürich West is the perfect place to try and buy a wide selection of wines from Switzerland and from around the globe.
Unlike its big brother, the Expovina wine exhibit onboard Lake Zurich boats, the Expovina PRIMAVERA shows no signs of rocking. Indeed, it makes for a comfortable place to find the perfect bottle for that summertime hosting. Look out for crisp and clean Rieslings and Sauvignon Blancs. On the red side of things, keep your eyes open for Swiss Pinot Noirs – nice and light when you want anything but a heavy wine.
The fair features more than 2000 different wines at around 90 different stands. When visiting, you will get better treatment if you do not go straight for the most expensive wine. Also, do order a case of wine every once in a while. (Placing an order is also the secret to getting free entry tickets for the Expovina in the autumn.)
After enjoying a few hours of wine tasting, visit one of the local restaurants in trendy Zürich West. A favorite of ours is Les Halles for Moules et Frites, or Brisket for their Southern BBQ…
