Wine list

As an accompaniment, we serve small but fine cold dishes:

  • Our Weinschenke platters:
  • Exquisite regional dried speciality meats
  • A variety of hard and soft cheeses depending on market availability
  • Mixed platters – a small selection of both meats and cheeses
  • Our beef steak tartare, famous throughout Zurich, from mild to devilishly hot
  • And to round things off, try one of our deserts, such as our lukewarm chocolate cake: a special treat to go with the last sip of red wine!

Allow yourself to be inspired by our menu.

Looking for an exceptional place for your event?

The Weinschenke is ideal for a cosy get-together in a relaxed atmosphere. Our platters, an apéro riche or Gschwellti (boiled, unpeeled potatoes) with 14 types of cheese accompanied by our selected wines guarantee a wonderful evening!

Next winter too, you can book our mulled wine apéro on the roof terrace for your event. Lit up for Christmas and decorated with ice sculptures
– a very special experience right in the heart of the old town!
