Early this year we “recruited” a team of wine lovers to help us cover more and better what happens in the world of wine, and in particular in Scandinavia. The Scandinavian market is peculiar in that all media attention is focussed on the monthly launches at the Systembolaget monopoly. Very few media bother about much else. At the same time there are many wine maker’s dinners, trade tastings, importers launch events and other things. But since we are ourselves based in Paris we can not report on all that. So we recruited a small group of wine enthusiasts to help us do it.
We have already published some 15 articles by our “BKWine reporters”. A few (too few) of those are also available to you, our English speaking readers:
- Col d’Orcia – a winery in Montalcino, Tuscany
- The Meerlust range of wines, including Rubicon back to 1991
- Portuguese wines from Bacalhôa and Burgundies from Bichot
We would love to publish more of it in English but it is a huge job to translate them that we can not do. (And we would also love to cover more of similar things in other countries…) So for the moment this is, for you dear English language reader, just a short introduction to our new team of BKWine reporters.
It is also a declaration of intent from our side that we will work harder to get more diversity in the world of wine! And write more. And not only on the Swedish monopoly market. We would love to publish more on what happens in other countries too.
Perhaps there are some potential new contributing reporters out that that could help improving our coverage in England, the US, France, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or other countries?… Contact us!
