Arvinis - wine fair in Morges

Salon International du vin Arvinis du 13 au 18 avril 2011 - regional wine fair in Morges with multiple local producers, starts this Thursday... Entrance is CHF30
http://www.arvinis.ch/
Anyone been to? Worth visiting?
They also seem to have nice dinners which presumably go well with local wines, but they don't have menus on the website... So have doubts abt that as well...

Re: Arvinis - wine fair in Morges

It is a wine fair. Crazy busy, interesting, crowded. Lots of reps from Vaud and Valais, definitely worth knowing; you can order wine, but they don't hold stocks on premices, so you have to either pick up or have it delivered. Many great producers.
The international part is to me the least interesting; it tends to be the making of big import companies and some smaller privates; in some cases, they may put out for tasting a couple of exceptional bottles (if you are lucky enough to be in the immediate surrounding at the right time).

Food is decent - the concept is not that it "goes well with wines", but that it feeds the tummy so you don't get sick.

Unfortunately, there are also groups of young 'uns that come to get drunk and down one glass after another ; that is why the entry is raised at 30.- this year.
