VINEA was founded in 1994 at the same time as the Rencontres Vinicoles in Sierre (canton Valais, Switzerland). Since then, VINEA has become a centre of excellence for the Swiss wine sector, organising promotional activities at regional, national and international level.
The 78 wines competing for the 39 Grand Prix du Vin Suisse trophies are now known, with the shortlist made up of the six wines (gold and silver medal winners) nominated across the competition’s 13 categories now revealed.
VINEA and Paolo Basso have selected 15 rare, exceptional cuvées which illustrate the outstanding quality of wine made in Switzerland. These wines come from across the country including German-speaking Switzerland, Ticino, Neuchâtel, Geneva, Vaud and Valais.
On Saturday September 2nd, World’s Best Sommelier and VINEA supporter Paolo Basso will present fifteen Iconic Swiss Wines, chosen as outstanding examples of Switzerland’s production, to an audience of wine enthusiasts.
