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.

Curry My Favour - Wine with The Sauce - Friday, May 5, 2017

Spice up your Friday evening!

Time: 7:00 - 9:30pm

Location: Steinfels Weinhandel, Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005-Zürich

Price: 99.- chf per person
(6 wines with 4 specially-prepared food courses)

The allure of exotic, complex, vibrant spice blends enticed Westerners to risk life and fortune a half century ago and push world boundaries pursuing a flavorful kick. You'll risk less attending this inspired wine & food event, as we lay a base of garlic, ginger and onion to build some non-traditional food & wine combos.

Curries preserve foods in climates too hot for grapes, meaning wines traditionally never featured. Can we achieve East-West culinary harmony? You bet we’ll try! Don't sweat (literally) the chili Scoville units, we minimize uncomfortable burning in favor of flavor.

From mountainous Kashmir heights to buried Punjabi tandoors, and Thai coconut coasts to a popular European fusion, we’ll toast favorite famous curry dishes with unexpected wines. Not a lecture, rather a nice mix of learning, eating, drinking and chatting.

Top Rack Or Brown Sack? - Blind Tasting & Pairing For Fun - Friday, March 31, 2017



SOLD OUT, please join waiting list below

Pricey wines... can anyone taste the difference?!

Time: 7:00 - 9:30pm

Location: Steinfels Weinhandel, Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005-Zürich

Price: 99.- chf per person
(4 fully authentic courses with 8 mystery wine pairings)

Why pay more for a bottle of wine? The answer is... maybe you shouldn't! Statistics prove that "experts" and "normal people" alike struggle to differentiate wines without a label and price tag.

Just for fun, we'll run this social Wine, Food, Wine! event as a blind tasting experiment: similar wine styles at bargain (~10 CHF), middle (15-25 CHF) and/or premium (30+ CHF) price points. Can you tell a difference? Which version do you prefer before we reveal the prices? Results are always surprising. Likely some bottles improve with specially-prepared classic food pairings... the only way to know is to try!

No wine knowledge required to enjoy yourself. Not a lecture, rather a nice mix of eating, drinking, chatting and learning.

It's Summer Somewhere - Chile & Argentina Style - Thursday, February 23, 2017


In cold and snow, smart birds fly south!

Longing to break winter's grip? South America is basking in summer warmth and we'll capture the same sunny mood for much less than an airline ticket. Andes neighbors Chile & Argentina deliver an unrestrained and irresistibly rustic charm to the wine world with gutsy food to match:

- Torrontés from the world's highest vineyards, with herbed Italian-heritage cheese
- Sophisticated vibrant coastal Sauvignon Blanc (always a crowd favorite)
- Robust Chardonnay with the pride of Chile's street vendors, El Completo
- Argentina's mega-popular Malbec with--what else?--Steak Chimichurri
- Not yet tried Chile's signature chocolatey red Carménère? Impossible not to love.
- Global noble red Cabernet Sauvignon done Andes style

This Wine, Food, Wine! lineup will have you giddyup-ing faster than a leather-clad gaucho and finishing like you've discovered a heavenly new wine & food oasis--and just maybe some new amigos too! Not a lecture, rather a nice mix of eating, drinking, chatting and learning.

Sunday Lunch With A Punch - A Chill Afternoon - Sunday, December 4, 2016

Our popular 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.
