Wine and food are so much more than just a culinary luxury. To me, they are the essences that fuel my soul with their energy.

STEFANIE | Founder & Chief Editor

I am the founder, publisher and Chief Editor behind CUVÉE Magazine. In fact, I am a one-woman-show when it comes to creating, writing, photographing and designing the print magazine. 

What sounds unbelievable to many is nothing but a logical cumulation of my past and present work experiences – from writing to design, photography, project management, culinary creation and wine knowledge.

As a former communication consultant and independent writer for international magazines and other publications, I have realized my dream of a more human, approachable and soul-touching wine publication with CUVÉE Magazine. I’m dedicated to telling the long version of stories that are too often told superficially, the behind-the-facts anecdotes that require intense personal exchange and seeking the soul of a wine region. 

Living in Champagne and frequently traveling the world of wine with enthusiasm, I have a great passion for singularity and and an understanding for quality. Besides writing about wine, food and culinary culture, I also teach wine masterclasses, host wine events, consult wine buying clients and participate as a judge in international wine competitions.
