Our cases are ranged from Discovery to Indulgence (bronze to platinum). Whereas this is also a measure of "quality" it is mostly a level of complexity and diversity.
Starter (Bronze). shows typical wines in the classic style - to learn or show the grape varieties and style. These are not "basic" but they set the bases for discovering more. Really a good place to start before you move on.
Explorer (Silver) still focuses on the core classic styles, but with more complexity and ambitious. Designed to give a wider understanding and make you try some new things.
Indulgence (Gold) showing off more daring wines, some of the best bottles and some of the more personal wines. You've now got the basics, and expanded on the basics, and you can have some fun
Magic (Platinum). Virtuoso wines, wizardry, creativity, no compromise wines - we're not learning anymore.
As a half-Swiss I know what distinctive, quality wines Switzerland can produce. Until now, the problem has been locating them in the UK, since the demise of the Swiss Centre in Leicester Square many years ago. Keep them coming!
PS: I would like to see, and taste a pinot noir or two from the Germanic region - very distinctive from Burgundy, but more importantly from the lighter, thinner Germanic pinot.
