The third Badischer Landweinmarkt (country wine market) in Müllheim, Germany - masterclass
An additional highlight for the country wine makers is the participation of Stephan Reinhardt, one of the most renown German wine journalists: The first German to taste, rate and write for Robert Parker's "Wine Advocate" was Reinhardt in April 2014. This is one of the most influential publications in the world of wine. Under the framework of the so-called Masterclass, Reinhardt will expand the insight under the theme "The variety of terroir in country wines from Baden" (subject to an extra charge and with prior registration).
A masterclass in English is also possible.
Stephan Reinhardt, 51, comes from Rheinland and started his career as a theatre scientist as well as a music and theatre critic in Munich. He was a researcher and lecturer at the Ludwig-Maximilans-University until year 2000 when he decided to make his hobby into a career, and dedicate himself to wine and journalism. From here on he has written for well-known publications such as „Süddeutsche Zeitung“, „Welt am Sonntag“, „Die Zeit“, „Der Feinschmecker“, „Falstaff“, „Fine“ and the English publication „The World of Fine Wine“. In cooperation with publisher Stuart Pigott and other colleagues they published "Wein spricht deutsch", a three kilo Opus to wines from German speaking countries in 2007. „The Finest Wines of Germany“ followed in 2012 and was the first book in English about German wine in 10 years. Reinhardt moved to the well-known Robert M. Parker Jr., "The Wine Advocate“ in 2014, responsible for Germany and Austria as well as neighboring Switzerland, Elsass and the Loire, after a short guest appearance as chief editor for Vinum. German texts are since rare, however does appear in a column for S-Magazine, a "Spiegel" newsmagazine as well as a random follower in „Effilee“. Reinhardt packs his suitcase in Lüneberg, but travels 150 days a year between Vienna and Nantes as well as Hamburg and Lago Maggiore. He feels it is a rumor that Sulfurized wines have kept him young, but is also not completely against the idea. He hopes for a broader horizon in the future for country wines from Baden.
