Expovina - Zurich's International Wine Fair
We started our Sunday off with a 1.5 hour boat ride around the lake (Sunday morning beverages included) with our great friend Andreas!
|Remember this gem?|
After our boat ride, and some much needed Kabob for lunch, we walked over to the Bürkliplatz docks for the Wine Expo. Expovina has been a Swiss institution for more than a half-century, every year a total of 170 professionals from 22 countries and 5 continents bring and estimated 4,000 wines from 22 countries and 5 continents are spread across 12 different boats. We were pretty excited. We wandered around the boats tasting champagne, pino nior, chardonnay, but upon group discussion, we decided that the Portugal/Spanish ports stole the show. We tasted vintage, medal winning, 10 and 20 year old ports that were beyond amazing; however, the BEST one was from 1964 and was about $150 for 35ml. That's right, they let us try a 40+ bottle of port and we can officially died a little more happy now.
