Wine Advocate Reviewer
Stephan, born 1967 in Düsseldorf, is a German journalist who began to specialize in wine in 1999/2000 after a decade of studying and teaching theatre science at Münch University in the morning and selling wine in a wine shop in the afternoon. Initially he wrote about theatre and music but after the translation of Oz Clarke's Wine Encyclopedia, Stephan started to write about wine daily for sueddeutsche.de, the online platform of the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Stephan has since published numerous articles for renowned daily and weekly German newspapers such as Süddeutsche Zeitung and Welt am Sonntag as well as for monthly German, Austrian, and Swiss wine and lifestyle magazines such as Der Feinschmecker, Falstaff, and Fine – das Weinmagazin. In 2008 Stephan became chief editor of the Swiss/German newsletter Weinwisser; four years later he took the same position at Vinum, whose 10 issues per year are published in Zurich/Switzerland but distributed also in Germany and Austria. Besides this he has contributed to The World of Fine Wine regularly since 2004. Stephan covers the wine regions of Germany, Austria and Switzerland as well as Alsace, Champagne and the Loire valley.
Born in a wine lover family where a bottle of wine was always standing on the dinner table he quickly chose to study hospitality in the Lycée Hostelier de Tourisme de Biarritz and then specialized in Sommelerie in Bordeaux. He began his professional career as a sommelier in some prestigious French restaurants such as L’Hôtel du Palais in Biarritz and La Tour d’Argent in Paris. His thirst for travelling and discovering other cultures brought in to Asia where he worked as Sommelier with two of some of the greatest Japanese Sommeliers Tani Nobohide and Mori Satoru in La Tour d’Argent Tokyo’s Branch. After four years in Tokyo he had the occasion to discover another side of the Wine and Spirit business and moved to Hong Kong to develop some fine wines retail shops with a strong focus on Burgundy and Champagne. This experience also gave him the opportunity to gain knowledge on the distribution of high quality wine. Back to France in 2015 as wine director for a distributor he then joined Salon Delamotte team as Export Director putting his knowledge of great wines, gastronomy and selective distribution at the service of the development and ambitions of the two Houses in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
