Terroir Zürisee

Where the cultural area Mühle Tiefenbrunnen stands, lush vines grew more than a hundred years ago. And this is exactly where we celebrated the 2nd Culinary Festival Terroir Zürisee on Saturday, April 22, 2023.
Get to know the most exciting producers around Lake Zurich, their best wines and delicious products.

Impressions 2023

At Terroir Zürisee 2023, around 40 selected producers were guests at our Terroir Market. With regional street food from the Blauen Ente and the Café Kornsilo.

Dîner du Terroir

The Terroir Zürisee is rounded off in each case with a dîner in the restaurant Blaue Ente. As a tribute to our producers, the Dîner du Terroir focuses on regional and sustainable ingredients for each dish. The 4-course menu was accompanied by selected Lake Zurich wines. 




What is terroir?

The French term "terroir" is a key word in wine jargon and stands for the entire environment in which a wine is created. But what exactly constitutes terroir? On the one hand, it combines natural factors such as vines, soil and climate. But equally, the cultural influences and the makers shape their wine and pleasure products. Character is multi-layered - and around Lake Zurich it has particularly many layers.

Wine Village Riesbach

The region around Lake Zurich is tailor-made to produce top wines. The glacier between Pfannenstiel and Albiskette has formed moraine hills with the perfect slope. The soil around the lake has everything good in it and Lake Zurich creates a mild (wine) climate. Viticulture has been important here for centuries. Riesbach, for example, was a wine village, as evidenced by the vine knife in its coat of arms.
