A great chance to learn about (and try for yourself) some interesting Swiss wines! You will have the chance to discover the characteristics which make Swiss wines an exciting discovery for wine enthusiasts, and dispel the common myth that Swiss wines not good. During the evening, you will learn the key factors which contribute to quality production and the development of unique qualities, discover how to interpret various Swiss labels, and be introduced to the key grape varieties and wine producing regions - as well as getting some tips on how to buy Swiss wines. At the conclusion of the class, you will enjoy a nice sampling of regional Swiss foods combined with various Swiss wines.

We have four places still available for this class! If you would like to join us on the evening of the 14th, then please visit our sign-up page and reserve a place. The cost of the course is CHF 90 per person, which includes everything...

I've been to a few of Jack and Silvia's wine and cookery courses. They are a lot of fun.

Cheers,
Nick

Re: introduction to swiss wine

This is a great evening, its a fantastic introduction to Swiss wines. Jack and Silvia are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and its also a great way to meet new friends.

I started the evening with a view that Swiss wine wasn't all that good and ended the evening with a completely different view.... then again we did sample lots of wine so maybe my judgement was a little cloudy by the end of the night

Re: introduction to swiss wine

Here's a new opportunity to discover a bit more about Swiss wine in a friendly and seriously fun environment...This is our fourth year of conducting this class, and I know we have converted quite a few - even a few Swiss who were also skeptical...

If you are interested, then you do need to visit our sign-up page rather than leaving an RSVP... You can visit our website to find out more about us and our qualifications...

thanks...
Jack

Re: introduction to swiss wine

I am out of town on the 14th but would definitely be interested in a future class.

Do you always post the evening to the board?

Thanks.

Hi...We do offer the class about 4-5 times per year (the next one will be end of January 2009). We normally don't post to the EF community about our classes. If the classes do not fill-up, then we sometimes put up a post depending on the relevance to the community... The best way to keep track of what we offer is by checking our schedule...
