I tasted two reds at Divinum that I would encourage you to try, both of them top end wines, priced accordingly. The first is a classic example of what you can get from Pinot Noir if your grapes are in the right place and you know what you’re doing. The second displays the potential of Humagne Rouge.
Divinum was created by Morges wineries when Arvinis was obliged to leave the town due to major renovations and construction around the train station. It has managed to create a local feel but with enough other wineries to make it worth any winelover’s time.
The young Swiss wine producers group showcases the changing landscape of Swiss wine, where the focus is strongly on precision, quality, retaining close ties to the land and making wine that reflects it.

It’s one thing to pucker up and eat raw rhubarb; it’s another to drink wine with something this sharp.
