“We have to stop drinking less”.
The Schluck Magazin (magazine dedicated to wine) crew – Paul Truszkowski and Julia Klüber – did it again, Winevibes Volume 12 took place at the Glashaus next to the Arena in Berlin Kreuzberg.
The idea is simple: bring wine makers and a younger clientele together in a less formal environment, like a club or a pop up bar.
They create this platform twice a year in various places in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich. Check out their website here.
The entrance fee was 49€ and you can try as many wines as you like as well as talk to the wine producers, have a bite to eat (for a little extra). That night we had oysters and a wagyu beef burger.
I got to try some very nice sparkling wines, one of them I found particularly interesting, non alcoholic from Jörg Geiger.
The alliance of tastes reminded me of some perfumes: apples, elderflower, thyme, rosemary / berries, roses and mint / apple, pear, walnuts and coffee.
Another favorite of the evening, and I was not the only one as their booth was pretty busy: Lämmlin-Schindler from southern Germany.
I find the idea interesting and I certainly support initiatives which place a product in a different context while bringing people together.
Paul and Julia are very passionate about promoting wines. Paul works at Wine in Black, Julia has her own business Weinbureau, they organise events and are working on the second issue of Schluck Magazin, coming out, I believe, in the spring.
