We're head over heels in love with wine, true "wineheads" in German. We obsess over three things: wine, sharing stories and meeting other Wineheads. It's the simple things we enjoy most in life. We believe sharing a good glass of wine over some salumi and cheese with great company is all that it takes. Although for all the Weinheads out there we know that wine is not a simple subject and good wine is quite a personal matter. We're trying to take wine not too seriously, but we do like to meet those who do. We're inspired by the passionate makers who put their life's work, heart and soul into the glass you're about to swirl, sniff and slurp. We believe that "every empty bottle has a great story to tell." and that's why we are on a mission with our grape escapes to help people experience great wine stories.
