A flying visit to Selection Schwander

I flew to Zürich this week to pour our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc for customers in the tasting room at Selection Schwander. Philipp Schwander was the first Master of Wine in Switzerland and has a remarkably successful business selling wine to private consumers, mainly through mail order. We’ve known Philipp for many years – partly as a result of my somewhat geeky Bordeaux reports – and he’s selected our white for his limited list for the fourth vintage on the trot. In a competitive market, with over 3,700 wine merchants serving the good people of Switzerland, he’s made Bauduc into a popular brand and our Sauvignon is one of his top selling whites. We’re currently exporting more white wine to Switzerland than to the UK right now, thanks to him and clearly a very sophisticated clientele.
