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.

Every Rosé Has Its Thorn - The Wines of Summer - Friday 10 July 2015

It's cool enough for Brangelina... and you?

Time: 7:00-9:30pm

Location: Steinfels Weinhandel, Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005-Zürich

Price: 85.- chf per person
(includes eight wines & four food courses)

Rosé wines are enjoying a huge global surge in popularity yet remain a classic wine world paradox--adored 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 terrible indicators of quality.

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. We even include two infamous rosés produced by Hollywood's Brangelina pair. Part of the puzzle is that their personality develops with certain foods... the dishes we're serving that evening!

Includes eight wines, four specially prepared food pairings and an entertaining group for chatting about your favorites.

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, four specially prepared tapas-style food pairings and an entertaining group for chatting about your favorites.

It's Summer Somewhere - Southern Hemisphere Wine & Food - Friday 20 February 2015


In cold and snow, go where the smart birds go!

Longing to break winter's grip? South of the equator they're basking in summer sun and warmth and we'll capture the same mood for much less than a full-fare airline ticket! It's not just their unique wines that differentiate our southern soulmates but also vibrant local cuisines.

There's no lack of inspiration: South Africa's funky fruity local Pinotage with Malay-spiced bobotie, sun-loving Chilean wines with infamously adorned completo gourmet hot dog, Australia's Mediterranean-inspired Big Reds with perfectly prepared--dare we say it?--jumpy mascot (sorry, skippy) or New Zealand's incomparably tropical mouthwatering Sauvignon Blancs with steamed mussels. And no, we won't forget mega-popular Malbec from Argentina and lots of other fantastic specialties from the globe's underside.

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?

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!

Witch Is Which? - A Halloween Blind Tasting - Friday 31 October 2014


A casual blind tasting for guys and ghoul-friends!

Need some fun this Halloween? Taste blind pairings of great boo-tique wines from the same grapes & regions but with different styles and prices--sometimes twice as expensive! Witch is which?? From fresh whites with a bite to big undead reds, don’t spook too soon, as blind tastings are full of surprises!

Prize for best costume: costumes are optional, but we'll all vote for best get-up with the winner receiving a free home wine party, a 100.- chf value! 

And even better than mummy’s cooking, we’ve got the food pairings under wraps: roasted Poultry-geist, crispy Halloween-erschnitzel, gourmet Franken-furters and sabayon Ice Scream. Don’t let the names scare you, it’s still Uncorked’s delicious fare to complement the wines. So grab your broom-mates or ghoul-friends and join us on Halloween. We promise a bloody good time and as the skeletons say, ”Bone appetite!”
