Wein-Research was founded 5 years ago by Olaf Schilling. Starting to drink wine some 25 years ago I always hat fun to explore new wine styles and regions. But I’m mad about good food and restaurants as well, and it does not matter if it is 3 Star Paris fine dining or Mama kitchen in southern Italy. So I am addicted to both: good wines and good food. That makes me a member of a worldwide network of like minded people. With my WSET Diploma/Weinakademiker, which I finished in 2018, I got a good basic theoretical knowledge about wine and tasting . But the wine topic means livelong learning and never stoping to explore something new. I’m constantly raising my horizon by learning from Master of Wines, Winemakers and passionated Winelovers.
I’m a member of the International Wine and Food society and Sommelier Union.
As a guest contributor I’m writing for Weinwisser journal wich was founded by Rene Gabriel. It is one of the leading journals for Fine Wines in Germany and Switzerland.
After finishing university with a Diploma in Economics I worked for Deutsche Bank Private Banking and now I’m consulting banks in the Mutual Funds Industry to finance my journeys.
