Commanderie de Bordeaux à Zurich, Induction of a new Maître
On 15th March 2019, Francis Boutemy, Grand Maître du Grand Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux, went to Switzerland to join the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Zurich, which held an Exceptional Ceremony for the Induction of the new Maître of the Commanderie, Bruno Strässle, who takes over from Christian Schmid.
Christian Schmid was the Maître of the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Zurich for 10 years. He coordinated this Commanderie ensuring an atmosphere of conviviality and friendship. There comes a time when it is necessary to move on and Christian had the wisdom to do this. The Grand Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux has expressed all its gratitude and thanks to Christian for the services he has rendered in the activities carried out in favour of promoting Bordeaux wines.
Bruno Strässle is the new Maître of the Commanderie de Bordeaux in Zurich. Chairman of Alliance Bernstein Schweiss AG, he is a loyal and hardworking member of the Zurich Commanderie. He possesses an extensive knowledge of Bordeaux wines, acquired in particular by numerous trips he has made to the Bordeaux winegrowing region.
