WINE LIST The following pages contain a few famous names from the wine world, however the majority of the list has been built with an eye towards artisanal producers and discovery wines that you can’t find on your everyday wine list. Almost all of these wines are unique to us here in Switzerland and due to the nature of the winemakers we are seeking out, we only carry a small range at any time. The selection represents less than 10% of wineries researched and will continually change as we make new discoveries. What this means for you is that most of the wines are from small, independent, owner-run estates that are able to demonstrate a clear passion for their profession and a level of technical expertise in their winemaking to deliver superior quality in the bottle. Most are highly rated by wine critics, such as Robert Parker, or José Peñín and many have very limited production runs. Though it is not an absolute selection criterion, we find that in their pursuit of excellence, many of the wines are organic and a number of wineries are also biodynamic in their farming. We hope you enjoy the journey as we have.
