SOMMET – ALPINA GSTAAD

Gstaad

The Sommet restaurant in the exclusive, luxury, discrete and cosmopolitan Swiss resort, Alpina Gstaad, is one Michelin star and 18/20 Gault Millau. The unique tasting menu compiled by the chef Marcus G. Lindner is a real tribute to exceptional produce and will delight the most distinguished of palates. The restaurant also offers a superb selection of wines, including over 400 rare vintage bottles from across the world, hand-picked by our head sommelier Pierfranco Lavra.

 

“What a great way to promote Italian wines: comparing, tasting blind and enjoying it with food is the real way to judge the true quality of a wine. Once more the Zonin family showed what great terroirs we have in Italy, and what they are capable of.”

“Just as Dionysus offered wines during moments of conviviality to accompany discussions and great food, so the Sommeliers’ Themed Lunch was a modern-day Symposium where the amazing, aptly-named Symposio from Sicily, was simply surprising.”
