SwissWine@ProWein, I joined the Dr. Jose Vouillamoz & #winelover – Unknown Swiss Treasures Masterclass. Co Author with Jancis Robinson and Julia Harding of Wine Grapes It provides comprehensive details on all 1,368 vine varieties currently making wine in commercial circulation – including their origins, how they grow, where they are planted, how their wines taste and previously unpublished information on how they are related. Four years in the making, it is, alas, not cheap.
Here is the list of the wines tasted:
1- Räuschling R3 2011, Lüthi Weinbau, Männedorf: Weingut Rühitof, Uerikon; Weinbau Schwarzbach, Meilen.
2- Humagne Blanche Collection Chandra Kurt 2011, Provins, Sion.
3- Jeninser Completer 2007, Weinbau von Tscharner, Schloss Reichenau, Reichenau.
4 – Bondola del Nonu Mario 2009, Azienda Mondo, Sementina.
5 – Humagne Rouge Les Maggieres 2011, Thierry Constantin, Pont de la Morge.
6 – Cornalin St-Théodule 2011, Gerald & Particia Besse, Martigny Croix.
7 – L’Amphore Blanc 2009, Albert Mathier & Söhne, Salgesch.
8 – Mitis 2010, Jean René Germanier SA, Vétroz.
9 – Petite Arvine Grain Noble 2004, Marie Therese Chappaz, Fully.
All those wines were really a nice discovery and an awesome experience, even after spending some time in Switzerland, couple of years back, I was never able to have a sip or even discover those little treasures. Thanks a lot to all those producers that made this two hours a magic moment and gave bottles of those swiss ambrosias, like Jose said many are really hard to get and very exclusive, some bottles came directly from the “Swiss Wine national library”!
