“When great food perfectly harmonises with a good wine, when they celebrate a wedding in the palate so to speak, then something big happens which you can perhaps call art. Then I’m happy,” smiles Beat Rubitschung, owner of restaurant Rubino in Basel. The many guests who choose to get pampered in his restaurant point to the fact that the wine and the food celebrate many weddings here: those who do not reserve a place, have difficulty finding a spare table.
