Wine tasting, courses,  

aperitives, dinners 



I am Australian, have a PhD in wine flavour and have lived in Europe for the past 30 years. From wine scientist in France and Spain, to wine producer, wine educator and now importer and reseller in Switzerland, my entire working life has been involved in this fascinating industry. 


I am proposing wine courses, aperitives, dinners organized in your home for maximum 5 people (until the COVID rules change): No stress - I bring EVERYTHING. Plates, cutlery, glasses, wine food etc. The host just needs to provide adequate space to sit and relax and enjoy the evening.


Any evening of the week or weekend, as early or late as your commitments allow. 


Aperitif: 4 different wines, abundant aperitive with eg. homemade bread and dips, focaccia, meat balls, cheese tarts, chicken wings….all home made.  Price from 30 Fr.- pp

Dinner: a 4-course meal with accompanying wines. Price from 80 Fr.- pp

Introductory Wine Course: 5 evenings to learn about how to taste wine, how wine is made, how to serve wine, bases of wine and food pairing. 280 Fr.- pp including 4 wines per evening and food, detailed notes and instruction. 

Advanced Wine Course: a course tailored to your needs: price depends on the selected wine and duration of the course.
