Ristorante Ornellaia Zurich
St. Annagasse 2, 8001 Zürich
Ornellaia has opened its first restaurant with Bindella, its life-long importer and ambassador in Switzerland, renowned also for its expertise in gastronomy. Ristorante Ornellaia is a very special place where the bond between Bindella and the Estate continues to get stronger. The expertise in fine wines and hospitality will be on full display, as well as the stunning beauty of Bolgheri’s landscapes, so that the whole becomes an expression of artistic beauty; just off one of the world’s most luxurious and exclusive streets, the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich. The venue reflects the audacious spirit of Ornellaia and the wine list boasts older vintages and rarities from the ‘Ornellaia Archivio Storico’, as well as large-size bottles that one can find only in international auctions. The bond between Bindella and Ornellaia is also confirmed by the inclusion on the wine list of a selection of wines from Vallocaia, Bindella’s winery.
The Italian Chef Giuseppe D’Errico is the perfect person to make Ristorante Ornellaia a small plot of Bolgheri in Switzerland. After working alongside maestro Gualtiero Marchesi at Alma and developing his considerable talents alongside Michel Trois at Restaurant Troisgros in Roanne, France, D’Errico’s decided to follow this project. His cuisine is a restyling of classic Tuscan cuisine that uses the same audacious spirit and vision as Ornellaia itself.
