Uncorked Wine & Food Events

We call them Wine, Food, Wine! events for a reason.

Want to check out our style before signing up to a wine course? Or maybe you're just interested in meeting some new people in Zürich and trying a selection of good wines with food. Our Wine, Food, Wine! events are a guaranteed good time, but first a friendly warning: you may just learn a little something to expand your wine horizons and show off at your next dinner party.

Evenings feature a particular wine region or style, offering 8-10 or so special wine selections for tasting which highlight and explore the theme. We're nuts about wine and food pairings--in which the wine or food or both are improved by the other's company--and therefore serve several food dishes alongside chosen bottles. Pairings are sometimes simple, sometimes transformational, always true to the region.

Santa vs. Schmutzli - A Global Blind Tasting - Friday 19 December 2014 


Is each wine procured from globe-trotting St. Nick or local Swiss sidekick Schmutzli?

Time: 7:30-10:00pm

Location: Zweifel Vinarium Enge
Brandschenkestrasse 130, Hürlimann-Areal
8002 Zürich

Price: 85.- chf per person (includes food)

Availability: 7 places available

Santa’s frequent flier miles in late December are legendary, leaving no famous global wine region untouched: from California to Argentina to Australia in the blink of an eye. Meanwhile, 100-year-old uniquely Swiss sidekick Schmutzli stays near home to hand pick Switzerland’s best boutique wines--not the usual Swiss style! Whose collection fits best in your stocking this year, Santa’s or Schmutzli’s... or both?!?

We’ll serve up a fun blind tasting of wines produced overseas vs. here in Switzerland--the same international grapes, side by side, can you detect the origin? Pleasant surprises guaranteed! We’ll hide the prices until the end too; after all it’s rude to mention price at Christmastime. Without doubt we'll include specially-made creative food pairings for the wines to rival your traditional holiday dinner. If you haven't already skipped town, join us for Uncorked's incomparable end-of-the-year Wine, Food, Wine celebration!

Italian "Boot"-y Call - Wine & Food of Italy's South - Thursday 18 September 2014

Oh yes, southern Italy is a reason to get excited!

Although Tuscany and northerly Piedmont earn accolades for Italy's top traditional wines, all the action lies south. The sun has shined hotly on vineyards in Sicily, Puglia and Calabria--the "heel" and "toe" of Italy's boot--for at least 3,000 years. The historical engines of Italian wine production are enjoying a modern renaissance of quality and value, combining a tendency for big rustic red wine with modern quaffability (that means they're fun to drink).

Join this social event showcasing the best wine & and local food pairings from the sunny boot. And then don't worry about calling us, we'll call you.

No Way, Rosé! - Summertime's White/Red Hybrids - Friday 8 August 2014

Say "yes way" to summer's cool pink wines!

Rosé wines are a classic wine world paradox--hugely popular in some areas, shunned in others. What's the misunderstanding? Well, there are lots of great rosés but unfortunately lots of plonk too; to make matters worse, color and price are a terrible indicators of quality. So what's a hot, thirsty, confused wine drinker to do? Join this Wine, Food, Wine! event and taste the whole spectrum of summer's coolest wines, from delicate blushing masterpieces to deeply extracted "construction workers'" rosés. Part of the puzzle is that their personality develops with certain foods... the dishes we're serving that evening!
