My new buddy Urs Schwerzmann at Zugs Moevenpick Wine cellar has invited me over on Saturday 20th December in the afternoon to have a fun time pairing his fabulous Swiss wines with some of my pretty good British Cheese.

No charge, you can sip and nibble as much as you like and buy only if you are suitably impressed. There will be some nice wine and cheese gift selections for those last minute gifts.

Looking forward to meeting some of you Zuggers!

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

1. Mike, do you know if they allow dogs in the restaurant?
Well, it's one-tenth of a dog, really, she'd only be 11 weeks old. A black lab.

2. Is it the Movenpick several doors from The Body Shop (sorry, my geography is bad)?

I dont think it is a restaurant, just a wine shop so should be no problem. (but will check) I dont know the area either but here is a map PDF.

I can confirm that it is a restaurant indeed.

No clue about bringing dogs there though.

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

I think I have seen dogs in the cafe bit (there is a cafe at the front and restuarant at the back) but best double check with the Movenpick.

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

Moevenpick restaurant and Moevenpick wine cellar are not the same!
The restaurant is on Bahnhofstrasse (nearish Body Shop) and the wine cellar is on Baarerstrasse.

I'd say it's no problem to bring a dog to the wine cellar.

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

A reminder about the cheese and wine tasting this Saturday. I'll be bringing along plenty of top form Shropshire Blue, Lanark Blue (AKA the Kilt Lifter), 2 or 3 different Cheddars, Red Leicester, Cheshire, Wensleydale and some very special goats cheeses for sale on the day.

On the Stilton front, I still have a few Stiltons in pots and 3 or 4 Stilton top and bottoms, great for scooping out "in the traditional manner".

See you there!

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

I forgot to confirm that this is definitely the Mövenpick Weinkeller, not the restaurant and that dogs are very welcome. Urs has just told me that the ceiling height will in fact allow any animals up to a smallish elephant.

Map here in case you don't know the Weinkeller.

The pup is growing fast but not that fast.

We have dog kindy in the late morning and then some errands to run. Will have to play it by ear. Thanks, Mike.

My mother fell in love with the Stinking Bishop.

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

That was a great day, and nice to meet some new faces from here. It must be said that the regular Swiss customers were rather surprised to be offered tastings of British cheese but they certainly seemed to enjoy them.

And it looks like we will be doing this again at other branches around Switzerland as I met the CEO on the day and he definitely approved!

Re: The Cheese train finally pulls into Zug. Swiss wine & British cheese tasting

Good to meet in Zug, and taste your wares, the Stilton is the best I've ever tasted, a the Stinking Bishop was lovely. I even ventured to your shop yesterday and am looking forward to my bacon sausages and Christmas pud'.

Now THAT is what I'd call a market moving piece of news
Way cool - good luck!
