the world of media is changing, and with it wine writing and its forms. Some things, however, remain the same: When I put up www.weinverstand.de in spring 2000 as what was, at the time, one of the first wine publications on the German internet, I named independence, transparency, and fairness as the cornerstones of my labour.
In 2010, I decided to make weinverstand.de/.com a pay content website. The German version of my newsletter, "Weinverstand Brief", has quickly established itself as one of the most read wine related news services.
For my English readers, I sadly have to announce that I will discontinue the English version "Weinverstand Letter". However, I will produce a bi-lingual Bordeaux special, covering the en primeur tastings, and providing interesting background information derived from factor and cluster analyes.
I hope to be able to welcome you back soon!
With my best wishes,
