Tastings with a Twist

Experience Wine + Art + Music + Innovative Concepts with Onne & Caro

Tasting with a Twist: Beyond the Grape with José Vouillamoz


Ever thought of pairing wine with Rock and Roll? Yeah, I guess that is because it is not really THAT unusual; after all Tim Atkin MW has a playlist to taste wine to at the International Wine Challenge. But have you ever thought of getting to the bottom of your “rock” to see how your wine “rolls” once it has bubbles? Probably not – we know it is a pretty off the wall idea 😉 Now, let us add different grape varieties to this mix and… you get a “Rock and Roll “Tasting with a Twist: Beyond the Grape“!!

Join us – Onne & Caro also known as the  Beavis and Butthead of wine (only a little bit prettier) – at the brand new and uber cool Terroirific ( Boulevard James Fazy 14) in Geneva on Valentines’ eve – 13/02/2013; Our special guest – Jose Vouillamoz, co-author of the new wine bible “Wine Grapes, A complete guide to 1368 vine varieties, including their origins and flavours”  and the rock and roll grape DNA specialist  will be our tour guide and explore with us how grapes and rocks interact to make wine, and how after a second fermentation in the bottle, these wines will roll off your tongue and create a very individual and unique sense of magic!!

As always we believe that (sparkling) wine is best enjoyed with a  little food so we have chosen a special selection of appetizers to accompany the 7 very different and diverse wines. Our selection of wines are based on the following grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Xarel-lo, Glera, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Cabernet Frank and have been sourced from famous (sparkling) wine growing regions!

For more details and to confirm you place to this exclusive tasting (only 20 tickets are available) please visit http://magicofthebubblesgeneva.eventbrite.com/.

We are looking forward to taking this grape adventure together with you and share the magic as well as the rock and roll of the bubbles! Remember to book as tickets are selling like hot cakes!!
