Uncorked Wine & Food Events

Such a good time in Zürich, you won't want to go home

Do you enjoy eating, drinking or chatting with friendly people? Or possibly all three? Then our Wine, Food, Wine! events are made for you (they're no more complicated than that).

Evenings feature entertaining themes with 7-8 wines to highlight different styles and prices. We're nuts about wine and food pairings--where wines and food improve each other--and always serve 4-5 specially-prepared, regionally authentic dishes. Nobody leaves hungry.

Since 2013 we've never hosted a group that didn't laugh, make friends and want to stay longer. Give us an evening, you won't want to go home.

Insane For Spain! - Big Wines, Little Bites - Friday 15 April 2016

Hey hey! We'll make you say... Olé!

Spanish wine is red hot these days, featuring bright whites, macho reds and stylish values from north to south. We'll serve up the range: super-value sparkling Cava plus modern whites perfectly designed for traditional tapas. Reds include aged Rioja classics versus modern styles, up-and-comer Ribera and more surprises--with pairings demonstrating how the wines improve with gutsy Spanish dishes.

In an evening dedicated to bold flavors and exploration, Uncorked hosts you for the best of Spain's dynamic wine and food offerings. Includes eight Spanish wines, five specially prepared tapas-style food pairings and an entertaining group for chatting about your favorites.

Big Red From The Med - Friday 19 Feb 2016

Find the sunshine, find the red wine!

For centuries, the Mediterranean has served as the world's red wine engine, churning out deep, dark, rich red favorites. Even the Phoenicians loved it. Regardless of the country--Spain, France, Italy, others--or the local characterful grape names, the Big Red style consistently remains the world's favorite. Is it a coincidence that the wines' smokey, spicy, quaffable dark berry character perfectly matches the cuisines of Catalonia, Provence, Sicily or Morocco? A couple thousand years of refinement won't steer you wrong... join us along with an undoubtedly friendly crowd and experience it yourself!

Sunday Lunch With A Punch - Chill Afternoon - Sunday 6 Dec 2015

Our first Sunday event! A deliciously lazy afternoon

Winter's coming but the slopes aren't ready. Holidays dangle teasingly near but work's not over... what's a pent up Züricher to do?? Relaaaaax, of course. We're applying our casual evening social event style to lunch this December for a new twist: Sunday lunch... with a punch!

Enjoy a selection of specially-prepared lunch dishes with various drink pairings. Sure there's wine, including the bubbly kind (Champagne or Mimosas sound enticing?) with eggy appetizers, bright whites for the Goat Cheese Tart and the red kind too for Roast Lamb Sandwiches on Homemade Rosemary Potato Rolls. But we also serve up sensational side dish cocktails and a 1970's throwback boozy dessert guaranteed to give you something to chat about. Longtime colleagues bacon and cheese already RSVP'd "yes!"

A tasty combo of food & drinks make the perfect one-two punch for a late afternoon nap. Join our long, languid (more than liquid) lunch and take some time to exhale.

Reds, Whites and The Blues - Evening of Wine, Food & Live Music - Thursday 24 Sep 2015

Cooool music, hip wines and our best food lineup ever!

As autumn's temperatures finally chill out, so can you at this cooool evening featuring a fabelhaft (that's fabulous) selection of wine, food and soulful live music. In cooperation with Steinfels Weinhandel we offer a decadent evening of favorite reds, whites and live blues--and perhaps our best food pairing menu yet!

The evening's eight wine and food pairings include a sparkling Piedmont red made like Champagne (?!), minerally white Bordeaux with Citrus Prawn Dumplings and rich Chilean Chardonnay with Smoked Chicken Salad. Full yet? We're just warming up! Try South Africa's signature chocolatey-red Pinotage with Cajun Lamb, a surprising Swiss Syrah with Five-Spice Duck Breast and a massive French Mediterranean red with, what else?, earthy salty Black Olive Anchovy Tapenade. Oh, and Sauternes for dessert. You'll hum happily all the way home.

Professional Women's Group of Zürich - Networking Event - Tuesday 18 Aug 2015

We host PWG's annual wine tasting event in the heart of the Old Town!

We're pleased to host the PWG's annual wine tasting/networking event featuring wines from women winemakers at the historic Karl der Grosse center. The evening features 5 wines with 4 specially-prepared “small plate” food pairings–enough for a light dinner–and journey through global wine & food styles.

In a relaxed format, Uncorked introduces notable wines from pioneering women winning acclaim in the challenging (and male!) world of wine production. From trendsetting New World countries such as Australia and Argentina to traditional European strongholds such as Spain’s famous Rioja, France’s legendary Burgundy and northern Italy’s rugged Trentino, our wines with a woman’s touch promise a lot to experience… and chat about!
