Today’s guest is Johannes Schellhorn, Sommelier and the co-owner of the ‘Freundschaft’ wine bar in Berlin. Johannes’s philosophy about the duties of a sommelier tells you everything how open-minded he is when it comes to various gastronomic products: “To think about everything you put in your mouth”. He also shared a drop of his widespread knowledge about fruit wines and his approach to natural wines. You will be introduced to the Berlin wine life and how the ‘Freundschaft’ has found its place in its neighborhood. Just a glimpse: “In a city where people can go to night clubs and dance naked for 48 hours, those are not the people who demand a classic Bordeaux.” You can also learn strange beverage-food pairings and some exciting tips on how to use social media in the wine branch. I hope you find this episode as cool and loose as I have, and we can all enjoy a nice wine ghost on the “Freundschaft’ terrace soon. |
