City/Town: Kloten, Zurich
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Balz Zimmermannstrasse 7, 8302 Kloten
Price: Free entry

Moevenpick Wine in Kloten hold special evening wine tastings and promotions for other local businesses every 6 - 8 weeks but once a year they have a "Ladies Only" evening. For this one they will have a Champagne producer present to talk about his bubbly, a Cigar specialist (Swiss ladies smoke cigars?) and Stockli Sport & Ski and they have invited me to offer a tasting of some of my British Cheese.

Officially it ends at 9.00pm but they often go on until well after 10.00. Wine can of course be bought on the evening but there really is no pressure at all. I have done 2 events with Moevenpick and have been really impressed with the friendly and knowledgeable staff (most also speak very good English). On Saturday I was in Zug and they had about 50 bottles open, you just help yourself (although I guess at this one they will also have waiters keeping you topped up)

Nearsest BH is Kloten Balsburg, link to the Kloten Wein Keller is here.

I hope to see some new faces, as well as some of the regular drinkerettes

Last minute bump. Please let me know here or by PM if you are coming, I need to give Moevenpick a rough total from our end. There's only about 20 of us so far and about 100 locals, I'm feeling nervous already about being mobbed by that many tiddly ladies.

Or maybe not

So you weren't spitting it out then?

Thanks for bringing the crowd. I have to admit that I did rather enjoy having my cheese nibbled by 120 very lovely ladies. The boys will be invited to the next one.
