Welcome to the Wineterminator

Wine is your thing? Fantastic, mine too. For over 20 years I have been into wine, in a purely private way of course. Wine gave me a lot. Not only innumerable wonderful hours. Wine also helped me make friends all over the world. And of the many experiences, which I was allowed to gain, I would like to pass on a few.
Please don t get me wrong: I am NOT a wine professional and would never like to become one. In France people like me are called "Amateur du Vin". Wine for me is hobby and passion.
In this sense this Website is purely private, completely unprofessionell, absolutely biased and totally unbalanced. And of course always remains unfinished. The Wineterminator writes the way he thinks and does not mince one s words. If you like my site, please tell your friends about it, if not, tell me.

Now comes the biggest drawback: except this page everything on this Website is in German. Before you run now and enroll for German classes, try one of the many free online translation services on the internet. Sometimes their translations are quite funny, but most of it is quite usable.

This is what the Wineterminator has to offer:

Vintage Guide
My personal tasting notes arranged by vintages from the 18th Century into the recent present. In addition short vintage assessments and tips for current drinking and buying. My ratings employ the international 100 point scale.

Top 100
Out of well over 10.000 wines tasted I selected my personal one hundred most memorable drinking experiences for you.

Tasting Notes
Here I describe as up-to-date as possible weinevents and tastings, in which I had the chance to participate. That reaches over a large Mouton Rothschild tasting to the spontaneous Best Bottle in the small, informal circle.

Wine Critique
Smaller tastings and Events with special topics are described here and the wines evaluated and rated whenever possible..

There is again and again a beautiful bottle or a special opportunity, which may not come into oblivion. Thus a kind incomplete, completely personal wine diary develops under WINE MOMENTS. Arranged by months and just in it s infancy.

Of course I have an opinion of my own on certain wine topics.

Restaurant Guide
Some personal recommendations of wine-friendly restaurants.

Shopping Guide
From the thousands of wine merchants a subjective selection of those, with which I made good experiences.
