qotd: All I really know about is some of their wines, and the main reason for me goin there would be to see the wineries. The history would be nice too
Wow just had a bottle of Chateau D'Auvernier Neuchatel yesterday. LOVE that you threw the spotlight on Switzerland wines, some killer quality there, wines that aren't explored nearly as much as they should be, but the prices are high.

One thing, Chasselas is not ONLY in Switzerland, it's made as a varietal in Alsace, the one made by Domaine Schoffitt is particularly good. Also you can find it under the Pouilly-Sur-Loire appellation in Eastern Loire Valley France too.

    Great guest. Would love to live in a 400 year old castle and pour burning oil over the peasants trying to steal my wine.
    Never been to Switzerland but defo on a list of things to do. I’d love it for the wine, the food and of course the snow.

    Late, late, late, late comment.
    Nice show. Sophie is a doll! I think she was really afraid that you’d come down hard on the wines. Fun.

    QOTD: I’ve always thought that Switzerland sounded like a great place to visit. Now I’m really interesting in getting a hold of some Swiss wine.

    Crossroads of Europe! Little bits of everything make it a great melting pot, and with such great food and wine traditions, definitely a place not to miss.

    Interesting show, I do not know much about Swiss wines.

    QOTD – I used to travel to France quite a lot. I used to land in Geneva and drive over to Lac Annecy. The Swiss countryside is beautiful. I would love to travel there again some time and not worry about business, but focus on visiting some vineyards and perhaps a 400 year old Chateau!

    Nifty show. Great guest… I had never even thought of Swiss wines and Im glad Gary liked them. QOTD: I would love to visit Europe some day and maybe now I should think of adding Switzerland to the list of countries to go to.
