Finally, in Sue Style's new book, Swiss wines are getting the platform they deserve in English. From pristine, crisp whites from the mountain tops of Switzerland, the journey continues through the jaw-dropping Swiss landscape, through a world of elegant Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, with discoveries of forgotten grapes all along the way. A valiant effort, and Sue has done an outstanding job at highlighting the best that Swiss wines have to offer. If this doesn’t wake your interest in the fascinating world of Swiss wines, I do not know what will!
