65. Zürcher Wein-Austellung (Weinschiff)

Published by marco on

Kath, Max and I went to the 65th Zürich wine expo in November. It’s held every year on the lake of Zürich on several ships (eight, I think, but don’t hold me to it).

Along the way, we learned about two wine events:

Wines we tried (and liked)

Obviously, we’re moderate noobs and we tried a ton of wines and we failed to cleanse our palettes and sometimes we liked wines because the people were nice…but I kept careful notes despite my growing tipsiness and I figured it couldn’t hurt to write them down. Why not? The store is full of wines I don’t know—maybe I’ll remember one of these names the next time I see a wine list.

The order is from the catalog, not the order in which we tried them.
