Expovina-- wine ships at Burkliplatz 2011

Is anyone planning on going to Expovina (the wine expo on ships at Burkliplatz) this year? I'd like to go for the first time, but the website isn't that helpful... I can't find prices or whether I need to get tickets in advance. Does anyone know how things work?

I'd appreciate any tips, information etc. From the website, it looks quite lovely... especially for a wine lover like me.

Maybe we could even get a group together and make and EF event of it...

My hubby and I take an afternoon and go every year.

Last year it was 20 CHF, and you can pay at the door. We usually do a big wine run at the Movenpick wine cellar and they give us as many free entry passes as we want.

I don't recommend going on Thurs/fri evening on the weekend as it's too busy and you don't actually get to have a lot of one on one time with the vendors. That said, not everyone can go during the day. If you can get there around 5 it should still be fairly quiet.

The mini cheese quiche tarts they sell are the bomb.
