City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Viadukt Market, Limmatstrasse 231

Following on from the hugely popular Part One tasting at the end of July we move on to Part Two (there will be 2 more leading up to Christmas).

This one is to celebrate the arrival of our new range of Vintage Ports from the small house of Skeffington, so small they don't even have a web site. We will have the 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2009 vintages open to taste with about 10 different British Blues including 2 very different Stiltons from Cropwell Bishop. I'll also have some Cheddars and other non-blues to try too.

The tasting is free but you can of course buy to take home. We start at 11.00 and and will finish about 7.00. This time the tasting will be held by our new island at the front of the market.

Looking forward to seeing some new faces!

Re: Port wine and Stilton tasting day in Zurich part 2

Thanks Mike for the beer, port and stilton, and purchased two cheeses, some chutney and a very nice bottle of white port that we are going to put away to enjoy with friends at Christmas time...

Oh, and thanks for the Bagels 'fresh from the freezer' - they were a gift for our babysitters, and they were very impressed and looking forward to having them for breakfast tomorrow...

The significance of Bagels is, of course, completely lost on this Aussie...

Sorry to have missed yet another of these events — I never thought it could be so hard to venture north of the Vierwaldstättersee!

(...) there will be plenty of other cheese related events leading up to Christmas, including at least 2 more Port & Stilton days.
I am going to be moving closer to Zurich next month, will try to get to the next one!
