What's Coming Up

Killer wine & food lineup with soulful live music, it's Reds, Whites and The Blues social event on Thu 24 Sep.

It's Just The Grapes! (the best ones) in our introductory 2-evening Wine Tasting Course this autumn.

Our super-effective 4-evening Quick Wine Course covers key wine themes, starting in November.

Enjoy the wide world of wine & food in our full fun Wine Appreciation Course beginning again late autumn.

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.

Coming Events:

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

Location: Steinfels Weinhandel, Pfingstweidstrasse 6, 8005-Zürich

Price: 75.- chf per person

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. A ridiculously good value including live entertainment for 75.- chf. You'll hum happily all the way home.

Past Events:


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!


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

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

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!


Insane For Spain! - Big Wines & Little Bites - Friday 5 June 2015

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: the super-value of European sparklers, 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, 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.
