From January 2019 onwards, Master of Wine Cees van Casteren will join Goswijn Simons for wine blog The Story of my Wine and Instagram. Cees will also post some reviews and will add reports of special tastings and vineyard and winemaker visits. As he travels extensively, this will broaden The Story of my Wine and hopefully make it even more attractive to the current and future followers.
