In oktober 2011 Marc Roovers published the first article on this wine blog.
A few months before, Marc took his wine buddy Rudi Jackmaert to a tasting of riesling wines at the wineshop Vinikus (now Vinikus & Lazarus) in Merchtem (Belgium). It was there that the fascination for Riesling started.
Marc |m| (1958) is amateur wine lover, and started with his pasion already in the year 1984.
Rudi Jackmaert |r| (1959) started with wine in 1999. Hij spent five years in his free time to become Sommelier, and graduated in 2016.
Since mid 2015, he stopped writing for this wine blog.

In 2016, Filip Salmon dedicated some pages in his book “Wijn genieten, ontdekken, proeven, beleven in België” to our Riesling blog. Of course, we are very proud with this mention.
