Wine Friends and Partners

This is a list of friends and partners in the wine tasting and -tour business that we at BottleStops like and/or cooperate with (listing in no particular order). We believe in the strength of networks and collaboration, so do not hesitate to contact us, should you see opportunities to work together.

Tour Partner and Friend

ASausageHasTwo...brainchild of english native food and travel writer Christie Dietz. It's all about German food - and she knows more than most locals. If Christie is not writing, she's probably on a media trip ... or on a Mainz Food & Wine Tour with us. 


Partnering Association

The Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates (VDP), around 200 elite wine vintners, works with passion, quality consciousness, and dedication to produce wines of distinct origin at the highest standard. VDP members bottle the most extraordinary wines in all quality categories from VDP.Gutswein to VDP.GROSSE LAGE ®. The VDP.Eagle is the seal of quality.


Taste wines in Rotterdam

[JUST] WINE LOVERS - Wine tastings of various themes organised by charismatic Eleftheria - mostly in Rotterdam. All wine lovers welcome... except wine snobs. We cant wait to get invited for a wine tour of Elef's home: Greece.

About German wines

Winetext - Few wine bloggers choose German wines for their main focus. So it is particularly refreshing to read wine blogger Simon Jones's straightforward, no-nonsense tasting notes on German wines (we are working on him to pick up again on posting about Rheinhessen and Nahe :-).

Taste wines in Amsterdam

We very much like the tastings held by the SwirlGirls at Swirl in Amsterdam. Their motto: Helping casual wine drinkers discover and appreciate grapes, regions, and good value wines through wine tasting events. 'Taste first - then drink'.
