The number 20—and its multiples—seems to be turning up a lot in 2020. Yes, 2020 has been a challenging year, but it has brought us not a few joyous moments. Reaching the 20-year mark, for example, are Jancis Robinson’s purple pages, the real go-to for the world of wine on the international stage. The same goes for the Slow Food guide, the authority for everything regarding biodiversity in Italy, and for the collector’s editions of Chandra Kurt’s Weinseller Journal, the most recent of which was delivered just a few weeks ago. Multiply 20 by 2, and you have the 40 years of Vinum, one of the most prestigious German-language journals; add 10 more to that and, voilà, FINE Das Weinmagazin, one of the world’s most exclusive publications. Finally, we reach the 100th milestone of the one-of-a-kind covers of the Schweizerische Weinzeitung! We send a message of heartfelt thanks to all these leaders in the world of wine for their invaluable educational and literary contributions to our Bacchic culture, and, above all, our best wishes for all the pages they have yet to write!
