"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 one must first experience, get to know, to which one probably also quickly gets used. Why should I and this - my - column be any different? 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 down to its core business. Almost nine years ago - on December 6, 2005 - I wrote the first column, and from then on, every fortnight, I took up a new topic. There have now been 226. All of them subjective, very subjective, from the point of view of a wine lover, of a collector, of someone who is busy with wine.
