Winemakers help. Winemakers are being helped. The willingness to help that is unfolding in the wine scene as the Covid 19 crisis unfolds is huge. Closed hotels, restaurants, wine shops and wine stores, cancelled tastings, events and trade shows: It has become eerily quiet in the otherwise communicative industry. However, it only took a few days for wine professionals, vintners, wine fans and connoisseurs to come together in a new way in social media. Digital projects emerged spontaneously with enthusiasm for a good goal or just to exchange ideas.

Within a few days, vintners, for instance, started generous aid projects for those hardest hit by the pandemic with unexpected resonance and reach. If they offer their good bottles for an important aid project on Facebook and elsewhere, the quotas are usually sold out within only one or two days. Moreover, during the past few days, web shops for the support of vintners and wine traders went online, whose turnovers are currently still mostly tending towards zero. Many of them also need uncomplicated support. In addition, there are live tasting formats to make the exchange between vintners, restaurateurs and wine fans possible. To help concretely and to drink good wine - this is the formula wine fans are currently using to demonstrate their solidarity and empathy. We have summarized the most exciting and most important projects. The list will be extended continuously.
