Markus's vines grow in a perfect location for producing elegant and complex wines. He works with old Swiss clones of Pinot Noir rather than Burgundy clones, believing that the local vines are better suited to expressing the regional terroir. His vines are among the oldest in the region, planted on parcels that date back to the 14th century.
On the day he will be pouring a few special wines including his Amphore Klettgau 2016 (skin-fermented Müller-Thurgau), and two of his single vineyard old-vine Pinot Noirs - Hallau Haalde 2014 and Gächlingen Schlemmweg 2014.
We will also be cracking open some bottles from fellow Swiss producers Domaine de Mythopia and Cidrerie du Vulcain.
And of course, it wouldn't be a Swiss party without lots and lots of cheese. Expect some Swiss cheesy delights from Androuet, a baked Vacherin Mont D'or with charcuterie, radish salad and toasted Sourdough (to share between 2-4 people), and some chocolate truffles. How's that for a hedonistic Sunday!
See you there!
