Travel Tip: Pop Culture and Cinema in Switzerland

ZURICH  •  Bürkliplatz, Zürich  •  Ongoing

Some 2,000 years ago, the Romans brought wine over the Alps. However, this wine would hardly have been drinkable, as in earlier times it was used not as a luxury beverage but rather for nutritional purposes. For the pressed grape juice did not transmit any diseases and could be stored for long periods of time; indeed, the longer it was kept, the better it became.

A highlight for wine connoisseurs, the annual Expovina is the largest public wine-tasting fair in the world. The venue is unusual in that the wine-tasting sessions take place on the water.

Oenologists and wine growers present around 4,000 wines from all over the world at 165 exhibition stands on 12 boats, covering an area of 3,200 square meters. And for every wine there is a suitable dish - as well as wine.
