Paula Redes Sidore originally came to Germany for the adventure; she stayed for the wine. Paula holds an MFA in creative writing, and wine qualifications in both German and English. Her time in Berlin coincided with the capital’s transformation from beer to natural-wine mecca, reminding her that even the most intransigent are capable of change. And so, following positions at several high-end wine establishments, she took the leap of blending her love for words and wine. First with Weinstory, a creative content and translation agency for the wine industry; and then in October 2020 with the co-founding of Trink magazine. You can read more about her approach to wine and words here and here. She and her family live on the northern boundary of winegrowing on the Rhine, outside of Bonn, Germany.
