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.

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!

Corks & Coals - BBQ Party with Wine - Friday 11 July 2014

Fire up that barbecue and grab a corkscrew, people!

Summer is barbecue season and--although we enjoy a good beer as much as anyone--lots of wines go great when you're entertaining in the fresh air and sunshine. Fresh whites, misunderstood manly rosés (you heard me) and of course, big smoky reds for all that meat.

In this Wine, Food, Wine! social event, we'll open plenty of fantastic barbecue wines and put grill marks on some favorite pairings for your eating and drinking enjoyment and you'll discover some great values and barbecue ideas. So grab your tongs and join us for a classic summer party!
