The international magazine "Vinum - Magazin für Weinkultur" (initially subtitled "Die internationale Zeitschrift für die Freunde des Weines") was founded in 1980 by the Swiss wine writer Rolf Kriess (1937-2000) in Zurich and initially published only in Switzerland. Today, country-specific editions reach readers in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and Spain. In 2004, Vinum also appeared in Italian, but was discontinued after one year. The German-language editions are identical in the international section. In 2005, the wine magazine Alles über Wein was taken over and some content was integrated. The publishing house became the property of Landwirtschaftsverlag Münster in 2002. Finally, in 2009, the Swiss publishing house Künzler-Bachmann Medien AG (St. Gallen) acquired the majority of shares in Intervinum AG.

For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.
