"No one – NO ONE – has met Dr. Ulrich Stein ( “Ulli”) without at least developing a slight crush on the guy. He is brilliant, passionate, incredibly fun, perhaps a bit manic and does nothing… nothing, that is easy or obvious."
Belluard may be the reason for Domestique, but the Alfer Holle 1900 is the reason I work here.
I was working at Little Serow and Kyle Wilson, the Beverage Director was patiently explaining to me all the wines BTG and BTB. I would go home every night to study and get lost in the Vom Boden website. I bought every bottle of Ulli's wine I could online and concluded that the 1900 was my drink of choice. I watched a video about Ulli and didn't believe it. So told Kyle I was going to go see for myself...and I did. Within six months I had gone from not knowing were the Mosel was to driving (anxiously) to Ulli Stein's house.
A couple of years has passed and I am still overjoyed when I drink the Alfer Holle 1900. Ulli may not remember a shy girl visiting him in August, but his wines deeply impacted my life and I'm very thankful.
