"Divorce hurts", they say. Man or woman is not so wrong. Every change contains both the old, which dies, goes away, and usually soon sinks into oblivion. And the new, which you first have to experience, get to know, and to which you probably also quickly get used. Why should it be different for me and this - my - column? It's the last one I'm writing, can write, am allowed to write at Wein-Plus. The magazine - as it presents itself today - is being slimmed down, slimmed down, trimmed to its core business. Almost nine years ago - on 6 December 2005 - I wrote the first column and from then on I took up a new topic every fortnight. There have now been 226. All subjective, very subjective, from the point of view of a wine lover, a collector, a wine enthusiast.
