The GiraMondo Wine Team
Join GiraMondo for this truly unique opportunity and experience! We will host an intimate gathering and wine tasting at the Swiss Ambassador?s Residence highlighting the best Swiss wines and foods. We will taste Swiss varietals including Chasselas, Petite Arvine, and Malvoisie, as well as international varietals (merlot, pinot noir). We will learn about the Swiss appellation system and labeling.
The location will be as interesting as the wines as the architecture of the Ambassador?s Residence is quite unique and the entire building is eco friendly with an energy saving design and materials.
Taste some of Switzerland?s most impressive and prestigious wines including:
? 2005 Henri Badou - Aigle des Murailles AOC Aigle Vaud region
? 2007 Chateau d?Auvernier Pinot Gris AOC Auvergnier - Neuchatel region
