Wijnfestival Zwolle with Van Volxem Master Classes 9. June 2015
The fourth Wijnfestival Zwolle took place in a romantic spot in the middle of a beautiful medieval small town near Amsterdam under the most gorgeous summer weather with many good-humored, mostly young wine enthusiasts and lots of tasty wines.
The party atmosphere was contagious! Thanks to the organizers Arjan Broekman and his team from “Wijnhuis” for the excellent organization of this casual wine party and my two master classes, where I was able to talk about the rich history of Saar and Mosel wine to sommeliers, journalists, and wine lovers. It’s great to see such enthusiasm, once again, for top German wines among Dutch wine lovers and especially in first-class restaurants here! A great discovery for me, besides the delicious lemonade by Pinky Rose, was the modern architecture of Zwolle. In addition to the spaceship-like city museum, I was impressed by the perhaps most beautiful bookshop in the world, which was housed in a recently renovated Gothic church. Chapeau! RN
