“Switzerland has 2.8 million of regular weekly wine drinkers, who will consume together at least 134,400,000 bottles of wine this year”
— Wine Intelligence Switzerland Landscapes Report, Nov 2018 —
How many of these drinkers will be happy with their wine choices? With so much choice and so many regions and styles of wines to choose from, it is no wonder you feel lost or confused when you are standing in front of the wine shelf. Using price as a guidance is your first reaction to solve the problem. Wine shops, supermarkets and restaurants know that. They used it in their favour, not yours.
We will dedicate our time, care, teaching skills and inside knowledge of the wine industry to you and only you. So next time you are in a buying situation you buy the wines you want to buy, not the ones they wanted to sell.
