Swiss Wines

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

We recently went skiing to Saas Fee in Switzerland and had a great time. Switzerland is an expensive place to visit, with food costing a lot more than the UK. While we were there we managed to try some wine, like everything else the wine is expensive, they often have bottles in 50cl sizes which makes it a little cheaper. On average we paid about £15 for a 50cl bottle of red and £25 for 75cl bottles. Every bottle we tried was a good and would recommend that when staying in Switzerland to try their own wine because it is hard to find outside their country, they must keep it all to themselves.

Moroccan Wines

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

We recently spent a week in Marrakech, which is a city of contrasts with the busy chaotic streets and the calm retreat of the riads. While there we came across some wines. Although Morocco is 98% Muslim and drinking alcohol is forebidden they produce some very good wines. We believe the best are the red wines, which are usually serve slightly chilled, this is due to the room temperature being in the thirties. The guide books said to try the rose wines and while there we saw loads of people drinking the rose, we thought the reds where much better, this may be because we are not fans of rose. If you get the chance I would recommend trying a Moroccan Red, we are on the look about for somewhere that sells them in the UK. When we have found one we will do a review on BarMirror.
