Location: Michelle and Allison’s home in Stuttgart-Süd
Cost per person: FREE

Attention IWCS Wine Lovers!

A small Baden Württemberg startup, Weinkules, has approached our group with a special offer – they would like to use our club to pilot their brand new, in-home wine tasting concept. And given our members’ love for all things wine, we thought we would give it a try!

The founders’ preliminary studies have found that people mostly discover the wines that they like to drink at friend’s places and many genuinely enjoy tasting new wines, in particular those coming from small regional wine makers.

Weinkules is has been developed within the framework of a university project and aims at making the big variety of local German wines accessible to a broader public via personal tasting concept, while meeting with friends.

The focus will be German small vineyards and up-and-coming winemakers. The idea is to present a variety of wines that they select exclusively for our home tasting concept, one winemaker at a time.

As Weinkules is currently refining their business model, they have invited us to experience their tasting concept for free, in exchange for some feedback in the form of a survey.

At the first event, a young Mosel-winemaker will be featured and present a variety of his wines. The Mosel region is famous for its refined Riesling, but has much more to offer. Besides tasting and enjoying the presented wines, you will receive more information on the characteristics of the wines directly from the winemaker. If you like the wines, you will have the opportunity to order them at the event, but there is no obligation to do so.

Additionally, we will be provided with finger foods to go with the wines. Food suggestions and recipes will be provided and additional information about the Mosel region will be made available.

Food costs will be sponsored by the IWCS. The wine is being provided at no extra charge to us in return for a completed survey from each participant (written or over the phone).

This is a +1 event, which means:

  • Any IWCS member plus one guest are welcome to attend.
  • Your +1 can be a partner, spouse, adult child, or friend.

To reserve your spot, please RSVP in the pending Facebook event or use the form below if you are not on Facebook. Please note that this event is limited to 15 participants.

You will also learn about the chequered history of a former monastery, why there are tram tracks in the market hall, where decapitations took place, which customs prevailed in old times in cemeteries – and much more.
