I’m heading off in a little bit for the opening of Arvinis, where I’ll be tasting as many wines as I can this evening. You can find my notes on them here tomorrow – just in time for your own visit to the wine fair in Morges.
Coupons give you CHF15 off the entry fee
Good news: I have 10 coupons for CHF15 off, ready to post to the first people who respond to this post on Facebook by “liking” Ellen’s Wine World, www.facebook.com/EllensWineWorld and who answer the following questions correctly on that page (use comments):
1. What is the name of my book on Swiss wines, published in September 2014?
2. Does the well-illustrated book cost CHF10? or CHF24? or CHF50
Arvinis runs from this evening, 15 April t0 Monday 21 April – 2,500 wines, 150 stands. Entry CHF30 / CHF25 for AI/AVS. A great combination is to visit the tulip festival at the waterfront park in Morges before visiting Arvinis. The weather is perfect for it.
Details from their press release
The 20th annual Arvinis wine fair takes place 15-20 April at the Halles CFF in Morges.
The guest of honour for this jubilee year is Vins de Morges. The group of local wineries has supported the fair since it was created in 1996. The 22,000 visitors who are expected to visit the fair will be offered a chance to subscribe to the Vins de Morges specially created “Cuvée du 20ème” wine.
A highlight of the tasting workshops this year will be a wonderful food and wine pairing with wines from La Côte and some 15 sushi dishes prepared by sushi master Alain Delley, who will prepare them in front of the participants.
Other highlights of the workshops will be “Vins de Morges and Gastronomy 100% local 100% pleasure” and the drone over the vineyards of Chatagnéréaz. Note that the workshops are in French. Details: www.arvinis.ch
