Virtual Swiss Wine Tasting VINEA - May 2021

What if you could taste delicious Swiss wines along with live narration - all from the comfort of your home? We have teamed up with VINEA, Switzerland’s wine association, to offer just that: a virtual Swiss wine tasting featuring three iconic wines!

Learn about Swiss wines (and taste them, too!)

We are very excited to have Emeline Zufferey on board as a hostess for our Swiss wine tasting. Emeline is a wine specialist based in Valais who frequently organizes international wine competitions.

During our live session on Thursday, May 27, at 6:30 PM, Emeline will be taking us on a winemaking tour in Switzerland. She will introduce each of the six Swiss wine regions along with their indigenous grapes.

As a food lover, Emeline will also give you tips about food and wine pairing. And finally, you will learn about the difference between biodynamic and traditional wine production.

Then, after topping up your Swiss wine knowledge, time for some practice. VINEA has selected three bottles from the best producers in Switzerland. From white to rosé and red, these vintages are iconic of their region and are ready to be sampled - by you!
