The wine village in which I grew up is located in one of the beautiful side-valleys of the Mosel river. During the grape-picking season the whole village was filled with the scent of the sweet, fresh grape must and we children really enjoyed tasting the fresh fruit directly from the vine. Therefore it comes as no surprise that I caught the “wine virus” at a very tender age, even though my parents were not winegrowers. I always derived great pleasure from a good bottle of wine and so I have thoroughly enjoyed creating something new and unique together with Thomas.
