Meet Swiss wines
and a few others that I love learning about.
Switzerland is a wonderful country for wine. Here’s why:
- the wines themselves
- the extraordinary landscapes, soil and weather that give birth to them
- the wealth of delightful grape varieties, especially native ones
- the vineyards that have been world pioneers in healthier and safer viticulture/grape growing
- the well-trained and creative artisans who are responsible for this patchwork of thousands of small wineries
- the postcard villages where wine comes to life.
