I have combined two of the best things that Switzerland has to offer: their unique local wines and their world-famous cheeses. We will meet in Cafe con Letras, a small cosy cafe in Kleinbasel, the district that exudates that Mediterranean ambience along the sun-drenched banks of the Rhine. I will meet you with a glass of Traditional Method Swiss sparkling wine (to break the ice) and allow me to cover the history of Swiss Cheese and Swiss wine, traditional cheese & wine pairings and the basics of how cheese flavours interact with wine. We will move then to taste 4 different kinds of cheese and 4 different wines, which in my opinion work amazingly well together. We will discuss the details and origins of the wine and cheeses and you can place them on a small map of Switzerland I will provide. For those looking for a Premium experience - we can indulge ourselves with two great Pinot Noir wines - one dry and another sweet - with two extra kinds of cheese to taste and discover. On a nice day, we will walk to the Rhine (1 minute) to conclude our experience until time to depart with a smile in your face (:-)) and your palate savouring the great flavours of Switzerland.
My passion started in Mendoza, Argentina, with the original “Juan” (my grandfather), who introduced me to the world of wine. I continued my professional career in the UK, where I finished the WSET Diploma. I 've worked for 15 years in international wine roles. I founded the Wine Guru on Wheels in Basel in 2016 to organise unique wine experiences for everyone who is curious about wine! (you?). I am also a WSET Certified Wine Educator teaching formal wine courses. My wine experiences are my lab outside the classroom, my white canvas, where you and I, together, create memorable wine moments!

We will host the event in Cafe con Letras, a small cosy literary cafe specialized in Spanish literature. It is nested in the lovely district of Kleinbasel, 1 minute away from the banks for the Rhine.

The wines we taste can be bought if you want to on the day (I have a few extra bottles). Not compulsory, no pressure. My wine experiences are not subsidised by wine sales!
