In May 2003 we published the very first issue of the BKWine Brief. It was short (with time it has grown and grown), it was not very elegantly designed (yes, we still have room for improvement there!), but the contents was actually quite similar to what it is today. Several of the text we had in the first issue are still relevant. For example the recommendations we had of good wine producers and the restaurant reviews. In the news section you could for example read about the sale of Chateau Margaux (yes, indeed! But only part of it).
We chose the perhaps odd name “The BKWine Brief” because we needed something that would work both in English and in Swedish (it does). Already from the start it was bilingual. (Do I need to add that we write BKWine without any space between the K and the W!?) Read more on how it was in 2003: Ten years ago: we launch the BKWine Brief, the newsletter on wine. You can even read the full text of the first issue.
