About BottleStops

Tours, Tastings & Stories - your wine tour guides!

Hi! This is me, Jérôme, founder of BottleStops, your host and chief winelover. 

I got born to a family originating from Champagne and got raised in the heart of Germany's wine regions - still I discovered my passion for wine not only late but also very far away from home: Living in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong for 15+ years, I privately imported wines as a means to share a bit of my home culture. I travelled to a number of wine regions in New Zealand, Australia and the US. Back in Europe my goal is to make German wine culture easily accessible to you and to let you have a taste of the best we have. 

Our Mission

BottleStops is a wine tour operator with the mission to provide you an intimate, lighthearted, and authentic experience of Germany's wines and wine culture.  Whether it is wine tastings in the city of Mainz or wine tours in the surrounding wine regions, we keep our groups small and friendly. We want you to learn about German wines in a fun, uncomplicated and relaxed way.
