Terroir Zürisee:
Already hungry for something new?





The wine and culinary festival in Zurich Seefeld.

Where the cultural area stands today Mühle Tiefenbrunnen lush vines grew over a hundred years ago. And this is exactly where we celebrated the third Terroir Zürisee on Saturday, April 6, 2024.


  • Wines, specialties and gourmet products 

  • Terroir market with around 40 Zürisee producers

  • Terroir night from 6 pm

  • Street food from the Blauen Ente and the Kornsilo

  • Scavenger hunt for children

  •  in all weathers (covered courtyard)


At the Terroir Market, you could discover the most exciting producers around Lake Zurich with their best wines and gourmet products. You could taste your way through a diverse range of top wines and regional specialties and meet the people who produce them. 

Look forward to next year!


Over 35 types of wine grow around Lake Zurich - right on our doorstep. How many of them do you already know? After Terroir Zürisee you will certainly know a few more, because with the tasting wristband for CHF 25 you get a glass - and with it the freedom to try everything the market has to offer. Find out what Zürisee wines taste like and what traditions and people are behind them. And in addition to all the wine, there is also cheese, beer, chocolate, coffee, sausage and much more for you to taste. 

You can expect a variety of specialties and the opportunity to talk to the producers in person. 


By the way: In the restaurant Blaue Ente we have a variety of regional wines on the menu. All year round.

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.
