What you'll do

I have combined two of the best things that Switzerland has to offer: their unique local wines and their world-famous cheeses. We will meet in Cafe con Letras, a small cosy cafe in Kleinbasel, the district that exudates that Mediterranean ambience along the sun-drenched banks of the Rhine. I will meet you with a glass of Traditional Method Swiss sparkling wine (to break the ice) and allow me to cover the history of Swiss Cheese and Swiss wine, traditional cheese & wine pairings and the basics of how cheese flavours interact with wine. We will move then to taste 4 different kinds of cheese and 4 different wines, which in my opinion work amazingly well together. We will discuss the details and origins of the wine and cheeses and you can place them on a small map of Switzerland I will provide. For those looking for a Premium experience - we can indulge ourselves with two great Pinot Noir wines - one dry and another sweet - with two extra kinds of cheese to taste and discover. On a nice day, we will walk to the Rhine (1 minute) to conclude our experience until time to depart with a smile in your face (:-)) and your palate savouring the great flavours of Switzerland.

Juan

My passion started in Mendoza, Argentina, with the original “Juan” (my grandfather), who introduced me to the world of wine. I continued my professional career in the UK, where I finished the WSET Diploma. I 've worked for 15 years in international wine roles. I founded the Wine Guru on Wheels in Basel in 2016 to organise unique wine experiences for everyone who is curious about wine! (you?). I am also a WSET Certified Wine Educator teaching formal wine courses. My wine experiences are my lab outside the classroom, my white canvas, where you and I, together, create memorable wine moments!
