Falstaff editor-in-chief seeks out the “rare pearls” at Vinexpo

Peter Moser – editor-in-chief of Falstaff Magazine, is a descendant of a famous Austrian wine dynasty (Lenz Moser), and born in the excellent vintage of 1961. Since 1997 he has been the editor-in-chief of Falstaff magazine, one of the leading wine and gourmet magazines published in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. We asked him to tell us a little more about his publication.

Falstaff-Magazine is published in all German speaking countries. While wine from all over the world is a main theme, we regard Falstaff as the magazine for culinary lifestyle.

What are you primarily looking for at Vinexpo?

Vinexpo is an optimal venue for meeting people from all over the word, who gather here for these days, so it helps to keep contacts and build new ones. Aside from my regular meetings, I am looking out for new products and regions. There is a lot to discover!

Which regions / varieties/ wine styles do you feel are gaining most in popularity in the region served by your publication?

Wine enthusiasts are looking for little gems from classic regions such as the Jura in France. The trend to organic wines is ongoing, and another strong trend is natural and orange wines which attract a younger generation of consumers. The wines of Eastern Europe are getting better and better, and people start to learn about the wines from that region.

What are you most looking forward to at the show?

I hope to find some excellent stories to be told to my readers in the near future. At the last Vinexpo I had the opportunity to discover Georgia as an upcoming wine region.

What are your thoughts about the official magazine, Vinexpo Daily?

Vinexpo Daily is an inspiring source for news from the world wine market and helps me a lot while planning my dates and tastings during the Vinexpo.
