MORGES, SWITZERLAND – Arvinis is just around the corner, 15-20 April, in Morges. Some 20,000 people flock to this spring wine fair every year, set on tasting the new releases from many of western Switzerland’s wineries.
The guest of honour this year is Arvinis’s hometown host, the Association des vins de Morges, fitting, given that this is the 20th year for the wine fair, held in the old CFF Halle, in front of the town’s train station. Morges wines cover a broad swath and include vineyards from Buchillon to Cottons to Villars-Ste-Croix. They may be less famous than Lavaux wines to the east, but there are scores of top-quality wineries here. One of the most interesting quality projects is the Servagnin wines, subject of a conference Thursday evening 16 April (registration: places limited), in French.
