Provins Expovina Zurich

A wine exhibition on board of ships? Yes, this is Expovina, and it will take place in Zurich for the 64th time this year! Twelve ships are anchoring on Lake Zurich and invite you aboard to discover and taste the most wonderful wines. The coolest part: thanks to our partner Provins, we have 2 invitations to give to you! If you are interested in wines and would like to visit the exhibition, you can register here now >>> On October 31st we will determine the winners!

For the 64th time, the Zurich wine fleet is anchored at Bürkliplatz and hosts, on board of 12 vessels, the largest public wine fair in the world. From 2nd to 16th November 2017, more than 4,000 wines from 25 countries and 6 continents will be offered for tasting. For two weeks, Zurich will be where wine lovers from all over the world will gather. On the menu: tasting, testing, comparing, discovering and enjoying the world of wine.

The offer of Swiss wines is extensive. Over 1000 plants from 15 vineyards testify of the variety of wines, territories, climatic conditions and the passionate winemakers of our country. The canton of Valais convinces in its role as the leader, followed by Vaud, the leading wine regions in the German speaking parts of Switzerland and Ticino; a great platform for the wine country that is Switzerland!

Around two-thirds of the wines on exhibition are from abroad. For two decades, wines from the Mediterranean have gained market share. Italy is the undisputed key player here: the classics from the north are ranking first although the wines from the south and the islands continue to gain importance. This trend also benefits the wines from Spain, Portugal, southern France, Greece and southeastern Europe. A selection of high quality wines from Germany and Austria round up this encounter with European viticulture.

Something special about Expovina is the traditionally strong presence from overseas. The range of wines from California is large. All known wine growing areas of this huge region are represented on board. The southern hemisphere is represented by more than 500 different varieties. Top vineyards from Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa provide a comprehensive overview.

The journey through the world of wine made possible by Expovina is as fascinating for connoisseurs as it is for laymen. You better try and then decide about your favorite!

The “Wyschiff” also caters to all your culinary desires. Lovers of cheese can enjoy a raclette from Valais or a fondue from Gruyère on board the “Panta Rhei”. Fine pasta is served in the Mediterranean ambience of “MS Vadim”. Those who would like to sublime their day at Expovina with a delicious fish or meat dish are most welcome on the elegant “Rosenstadt”.
