Friends and new friends,
As many of you know my good friend Chris Lebherz is a talented sommelier in Frankfurt. He recently struck out on his own with Cool Climate, a store in Sachsenhausen where he introduces people to the wide world of the “natural” wines he loves and loves to share. Cool Climate inspired me to try to do something similar in my own smaller way.
This brand-new web resource will be dedicated to sharing things worth knowing about wine. I won’t try to demystify or reduce the perceived complexity of wine — what would be the fun in that? — but rather give people the tools to get the most enjoyment they can from the wide and thrilling world of the world’s oldest beverage. In this effort I know I can count on Chris — and the many other inspiring people I’ve met in wine — to help us down this path together.
Finally, like wine itself, this site is ultimately about people and friends and enjoying ourselves — I think this label from Marcel Lapierre sums it up nicely. So stay in touch!
