Choice wines: Switzerland

The viticulture of Switzerland is recognised to go back more than 2000 years. Numerous grape varieties are grown for wine productions. Some are indigenous, whilst others are also found internationally. High-quality Swiss wines continue to receive many awards and are increasing in popularity, globally. For this quest I searched for Pinot Noir wines from Switzerland.

Grand Prix du Vin Suisse - The 73 nominees are...

In June 2007, following the first Grand Prix du Vin Suisse tasting, organised by Vinum and Vinea in Sierre, I was frustrated. The French Swiss had very different ideas than the German speaking about what a good wine was. I was even wondering if such a Grand Prix made sense. Ten years later...

Swiss bank on vineyards of Lavaux to make fine wine

One bright October afternoon two days before harvest, Swiss winemaker Blaise Duboux chucked a fallen quince over the iron fence girding his terrace and into the sloping vineyard next door. It should have easily rolled 600 precipitous feet down to shimmering Lake Geneva, plied by stately steamers and backdropped by the snowcapped French Alps across the water. But some 40 levels of terraces staircase the hillside, intervening.

As beach season draws to a close (today, September 23rd, is the Fall Equinox, not Labor Day), I want to address a global wine-related epidemic that hits its zenith in summer.

With each vintner visit, our discussion of their carefully crafted whites and demand for their latest vintages inevitably led to the following conclusion: Consumers are sucking them down long before they should be opened. In other words, we drink white wine too young.

Wine Health Benefits

Wine is the most ancient documented man-made medicine; as far back as 2200 BC, tablets from Sumerian culture and papyri from Ancient Egypt describe recipes for wine-based medicines. For many centuries, faced with the lack of safe drinking water, wine was recommended as a alternative.
