  • "I have to say, I've been underwhelmed by most Swiss wines I've ... know, like a mural of Lake Geneva with snow capped peaks and yodelers, or those dogs with the barrels under their neck.

Four days and 4 nights with as much wine as work would allow. I have not been to burgundy in a while. I was due to remind myself there are wines to taste there that I will never find in a store, eve... Read More

  • Well, BLM, you're probably drinking better than any of the rest of us on ... your road trip talking about Geneva's months-long sock-ins since your photos seem to show overcast. ;-(How did you end up choosing Pommard over any of the other options? And was that a Montrachet/Meursault horizontal at meal? Color me green.Of course now we'll expect ... Read More

But 2 and 1/2 ... a friend or relative out of Geneva before a week of November overcast had run, out towards some sun, though usually stopped at the first high rise into France with an appropriate roadhouse.

There are some exceptions: fendant ... ... a vegan friend in downtown Geneva at a Lebanese place, I had the lamb it was outstanding wine not too much choice but Côtes du Rhône was up to the job, always reliable around here.

And Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) is viewed by some as the source of the Rhone, while others only see the lake as a wide spot in the river with its origins even further upstream in the biggest winegrowing part of Switzerland.

  • My professional connections with Geneva were mostly on the Berners-Lee side of things, and a UN organization or two. No linear accelerator involvement for me, I'm afraid (though on a wine footnote I did discover Ridge wines long ago after flying a Cessna over the Stanford accelerator and getting curious enough about some vineyards I saw to check...

  • You're less than 15 minutes from Geneva, I'm assuming, so for old-skool these are two places I used to periodically hit: 'les armures' in the old town,or what's colloquially referred to as 'le chateau de Penney' in the countryside, relatively near the airport.I've actually stayed at the hotel side of both those joints when I wanted away from the...

  • Based in Geneva? Plenty of good food and drink in that town, though not always the cheapest. Even some country restaurants nearby that're very good. Can tell you about some great smoked seabass in a fine restaurant (that matched some Domaine de Chevalier or Montrachet variant white just fine) which was a touchstone for my visits in the '90s and ...
