Discovering Vaud wines
Throughout the festival, visitors will be able to sample the treasures of Vaud wines at the event’s main bar. In addition, tastings will be available in the event hut on September 8 and 9. Under the motto of the culinary future, exciting prospects for the future will be presented to the public, with themes such as innovation, waste reduction and local production. In support of this approach, the noble wines of Vaud will be front and center at these various events in the lively metropolis.
Vaud wines and vegetarian dishes?
The Vaud Wines promotion office is paying tribute to this year’s motto with two exclusive events: guests will be able to test the perfect match between Vaud wines and vegetarian dishes, at two Masterclass sessions on the theme of “Lunch Tasting”. Sommelier Shirley Amberg will take guests into the world of vegetarian pleasures and introduce them to subtle pairings between Vaud wines and vegetarian delights. During these two Masterclasses, 6 carefully selected Vaud wines will be served with delicious seasonal vegetarian dishes, creating a perfect gustatory harmony.
