GERMANY (Munich) - Which vine types grow in Lebanon? How is wine grown in Bordelais? How do I recognize a good wine? These and more questions will be answered at the International Wine Fair FORUM VINI in the Munich M,O,C event center November 12 - 14. The versatile and free fringe events are a tradition and there is no doubt that the roughly 10,000 guests will not only taste wine at the fair, but also learn a lot about the wine in workshops and seminars that will take place over three days.

Stefan Kraus, a travelling teacher in terms of wine, will show you in his sensor-workshop "Wine - experience it with all senses" how you can turn into a wine expert. This quick course will explain wine tastings and practically show the wine know-how - maybe this way you can find a new or different favorite wine...

The Generation Riesling proves in their tastings that junior vintners can also produce excellent red wines: Steffen Schindler from the German Wine Institute will present the secrets of white as well as red wines and explain why the Riesling is so very popular all over the world. Then, wine academic Thomas Riedl will explain the "seven elements of uniqueness" of Austrian wines and the wine journalist Rudolf Knoll will have some Gruene Veltliner, Blaufraenkisch and Zweigelt for his guests - the classic of Austria.
