Travelling in wine

Bicycling through the vineyards or trekking on foot from winery to winery, discoveries in cellars and kitchens, conversations with vintners and comrades - all can be part of the adventure. You will experience more with a competent guide: The wine journalist opens your eyes for wine experiences that the group encounters along the way - both through anecdote and expert knowledge. Steffen Maus plans conscientiously while having great respect for the wishes of his fellow travellers. Wine enthusiasts are thus able to experience German or Italian wine regions in a fully new and more comprehensive light, in a tempo and rhythm tailored to the group.

Wine to follow

Etna Rosso - wines from vulcanic soils from the northern part of the vulcano Etna between the towns of Randazzo and Linguaglossa at 600 to 1000 meters above sea level. It's a fascinating part of Italian viticulture in an area that had more than 50000 acres of vineyards at the end of the 19th century. Today, there are less than 8000 acres left of the particular grape variety Nerello Mascalese. Watch out for vineyards like I Vigneri, Pasciopiscaro, Graci, Tenuta di Fessina oder Girolamo Russo! The vintage 2008 is the vintage of the decade and worth getting your hands on even for prices at Brunello and Barolo level!
