Introduction to Swiss wines with Seth Tan

Thursday 26th January 2023

Wine is made in nearly every canton of Switzerland. With the main winemaking areas along the lakes and major rivers, the varying soil diversity due to the Alps makes Switzerland home to some of the most stunning vineyards in the world. 
 
Sandwiched between Germany, Italy, Austria and France, only 2% of Swiss wine is exported – with the majority consumed in Germany. Navigating the myriad cultures, landscapes, and customs that define the charming country, Senior Sommelier Seth Tan will take Members through some of the interesting wines this bountiful region has to offer.

The wines that will be tasted:

2013 Steve Bettschen, Arvine, Phusis, Extra Brut
2020 Riesling x Sylvaner, Fläscher, Hansruedi Adank
2020 Completer, Malanserrebe, Donatsch

Saturday 18th February 2023

Port and Vinho Verde may sound familiar, but have you ever heard of Castelão, Ramisco or Touriga Nacional? These are just some of the expressive 250-odd grape varieties, or castasnative to Portugal—the hallmark of the country’s winemaking culture.
