Hofschuster Marcus

The German wine expert Marcus "Sam" Hofschuster (*1968) is today one of the most renowned wine critics in Germany and Europe. His passion for German wine was awakened in the late 1980s. During his time as a wine merchant, he was already a committed promoter of top German growths. It was then that he came up with the idea of a comprehensive guide to the best German growths (at that time still online and in book form, now only online). Gradually, other countries followed.

Today, Marcus Hofschuster and his colleagues taste and rate wines on a daily basis. From the beginning, this was done exclusively in the form of blind tastings in the tasting room of wein.plus in Erlangen (Middle Franconia, Bavaria).
