As professional wine taster I offer a huge experience and various services within the world of fine wines.
Wine is a cultural posession, a philosophy and, quite profane, just a means for pleasure. Who draws nearer to the wine with open senses discovers zest for life and inspiration. As appointed representative I act for more than sixty of the very best producers from all over the world.
How to judge a wine? Which choice of words describes the sensory perceptions during consumption most aptly? Which premises influence the character of a wine? How can we make wine better and more natural? How to combine food and wine? Since more than twentyfive years I do a research for getting answers on all the interesting questions around great wine.
My events and services are tailor-made and are performed the most professional way possible.
Wine tours and tastings: All informations are first-hand. Every year I visit some hundred wineries on spot. A marvellous mass as rich treasure of experience: Every year I taste some thousand great wines.
The scientific side: Since long years I do a research of methods, analysis and interpretation of wine tastings receiving the international attention.
The cultural side: As cultural ambassador I act for more than sixty of the very best producers from all over Europe.
The pleasure: In my seminars we exclusively taste great wines out of reputated vineyards and great vintages. The menus going with these great wines are of the same quality.
The infrastructur: In various German and European cities I have partners from the top gastronomy. That guarantees highest quality.
