About the event

Discover the unique world of Swiss wine and get professional insight into the local wine industry! While chocolate, cheese, and banks may dominate Switzerland's reputation, the incredibly beautiful Swiss vineyards should never be overlooked. Spanning across all 26 cantons, these 15,000 hectares yield over 100 million hectoliters annually, yet only satisfy a modest 35% of local demand – a testament to the nation's love for wine!

Embark on an exciting journey through Swiss wine culture alongside Joanna Abendroth, DipWSET, in a Swiss Wine Masterclass. From the rich history to the diverse regions, local grape varieties, and Alpine terroirs, each sip unveils a story of true dedication and craftsmanship. Delve into the essence of Swiss winemaking as we explore a curated selection of six distinct Swiss wines, served with a generous pour of knowledge and a dash of excitement. Elevate your palate and expand your horizons with an unforgettable tasting experience that promises to unlock the most hidden gem of European wine culture.

Joanna Abendroth, DipWSET | Weinakademiker candidate

Born and raised in Poland, my journey with wine began among the vines that grew around my family home. While our homemade fermentations were modest, these grapes sparked an enduring passion for wine.

Originally obtaining degrees in political science and linguistics, in 2016, I began a new chapter in Switzerland, knowing little about Swiss wines. Determined to deepen my understanding, I immersed myself in wine culture, from participating in grape harvests to pursuing WSET courses. Today, armed with a WSET Level 4 Diploma from the Austrian Wine Academy, I proudly contribute to the Swiss wine industry working as Zurich Store and Events Manager at Terravigna and as Lecturer at Zürich Wine Academy.

As a wine educator, I strive to make wine approachable for all, rejecting snobbery in favour of inclusivity. I navigate the dilemma of exploring unfamiliar varieties or enjoying my beloved classics. My Instagram @feelyourwine serves as a platform to share my love for Swiss wine and expand wine knowledge.

When not immersed in the world of wine, you can find me finding peace in yoga or beneath the stars, camping under the open sky.
