KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep: @anneInvino how did you pick your #twitter avatar and was it done professionally?

Anne Krebiehl MW @AnneInVino A picture a friend of mine made fr photo while he was bored during night shift. The original taken N Kent/UK.. #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl He had some graphic design but it was not really done professionally. I love using it cos people cannot recognize me! #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q. @AnneInVino Who are your wine industry mentors & what was the wine that gave you the inspiration to get into the wine? Thanks #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman #SommChat There are many great people I have learnt from over the years: winemakers as well as other figures...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman #SommChat ...who followed their passion. I have always found that the people who really know and really are experts...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman #SommChat ...are the ones who most happily share their knowledge. I want to do the same: share & encourage!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @AnneInVino what got you interested in the #Wine business & when did you first get interested? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl There are many roots for my love in wine: my love of food and a love of nature from a very young age …#SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl then my father’s love of horticulture and my family's love of nature, my mother's cooking...simply put: flavour! #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl But the impetus to learn came at the shop of Chapoutier in Tain l’Hermitage when I was given two glasses... #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl : ...same vintage, same grape, just different vine age. That set me off. #SommChat Since then I have LOVED to study wine...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl I cannot imagine ever stopping to learn about wine! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: Where are u based in UK and have you lived in other places? Did that affect your #wine interests?

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat I was born and raised in rural Germany, but lived in the US and Italy before coming to England to go to university...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat London has been my home since and is a great place for wine! For my studies I harvested/helped to make wine in NZ...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl ...Piedmont and southern Germany. I still want to harvest more! #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat London has wines on offer from simply EVERYWHERE, and you can easily go to fine wine tastings, too. Then of course...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat ...London is also very well connected flight-wise to all European growing regions. Living and working in a region ...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat...however gives you invaluable, local insight! True treasures and real understanding!

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines RT @AnneInVino: @KeeperColl ...Piedmont and southern Germany. I still want to harvest more! #SommChat Where in Piedmont?

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @noblewines @KeeperColl #SommChat I harvested in Treiso/Barbaresco but I think I'd go even further north to Lessona or so...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @noblewines @KeeperColl have even more ethereal Nebbiolo! I love those Alpine wines! #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q. @AnneInVino Any desire to make wine if you haven't already? If so where & what would you like to make? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman What a tantalizing question! Pinot Noir is my first answer and I have helped to make that in Germany. #SommChat ...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman #SommChat ...also, If I grew PN I could also try and make sparkling Pinot - I think I am tempted by marginal climates...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman #SommChat anywhere that Pinto, Nebbiolo or sparkling wines thrive, that would be my place - be it extreme Sonoma coast

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @SandyWasserman #SommChat or the cooler reaches of NZ or Oz, or even England!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @AnneInVino Congrats on your recent achievement becoming a Master of #Wine! What was that journey like for you? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl Oh my! It took me to the limit. It was v hard work but I also met so many fascinating people. It took over my whole life! #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat I found the academic part far easier than the tasting. I really went beyond all my comfort zones to achieve this!

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl Hi Anne thanks for being here! What's ur fav bubbles this time of year? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl Tricky question: with my family at Christmas I had German Riesling Sekt...#SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat ..but I love traditional method if it's well-made. Right now I love @nyetimberwines Classic Cuvee 2009

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat ..and I also have a lovely Champagne collection - I adore Jacquesson 736 and Drappier. Then there is..

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl ...Trentodoc, trad method with gorgeous Alpine briskness! #SommChat I also have a weakness for Californian fizz

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat @LouisRoederer_ Anderson Valley '@IronHorseVyds @Schramsberg and @domainecarneros

Lisa Wilk ‏@winechix .@AnneInVino luv ur taste in #bubbles! " @KeeperColl @LouisRoederer_ Anderson Valley @IronHorseVyds @Schramsberg & @domainecarneros" #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl #Champagne has 3 essential #grapes: #Chardonnay, #Pinot #Meunier, & Pinot Noir more from @peterwasserman #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines @AnneInVino Do you still do work for wine enthusiast? #SommChat What are your duties if so?

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @noblewines Yes I do! #SommChat - I am contributing editor for Austria, ie I taste all Austrian wines and contribute one-off features, too.

Jodi Fritch ‏@jodifritch Q. @AnneInVino Do you feel being a lover of cooking and gardening gives you an edge when pairing wine and food? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @jodifritch #SommChat Not really an edge, but MOST CERTAINLY added pleasure. It also gives me a richer frame of reference for description!

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines @AnneInVino I've had some nice Baden #pinot noir have you made wine there? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @noblewines #SommChat Yes! I have! I worked the 2009 vintage @FranzKellerSA in the Kaiserstuhl - a great, warm, ripe vintage!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @AnneInVino what advice do you have 4 those looking to pursue @MastersofWine? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl @mastersofwine Work hard, be organized, curious & meticulous. Taste as much as you can. Be resilient & don't give up! #SommChat

Courtney Quinn ‏@Path2Wine Q. @anneinvino What #wine projects or trips are you planning in 2015? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @Path2Wine #SommChat A quick look at my diary says: Vienna, Berlin, Budapest, NY and Germany of course! That's just the coming 3 months

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @AnneInVino how would you describe your style of #Wine writing? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl As a freelancer I have to adopt different voices for different audiences: trade & consumer journalism are v different #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep: what did you write your @mastersofwine dissertation on and what major fact/lesson did you uncover?

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl @mastersofwine The title was "The Future of Premium German Pinot Noir"#SommChat and I uncovered that the quality revolution...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat ...has a real foundation in viticulture and oenology - I could go to the supreme court and make a watertight case!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl RT @demilove: @AnneInVino happy new year! What wine regions that are under the radar now, should be on our tasting list in 2015? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl @demilove #SommChat English sparkling wines are still under the radar internationally but are so worth tasting! @englishwine

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @demilove @KeeperColl #SommChat I had an amazing trip to the Extreme Sonoma Coast early in 2014 and LOVED it. I should love to return...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @demilove @KeeperColl #SommChat Since Pinot Noir, Riesling and Sparkling are my favourite subjects, I'd love to visit Oregon, Finger Lakes..

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @demilove @KeeperColl #SommChat ..and Michigan, and of course see more of California! I love the US!

Courtney Quinn ‏@Path2Wine Q. @anneinvino What writing pieces are you working on in 2015? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @Path2Wine #SommChat I am writing a piece on the Fort Ross AVA, and on Austria wines but I am also still waiting for editorial decisions..

Sassodoro ‏@Sassodoro @KeeperColl @AnneInVino Coming in late to #SommChat & trying to catch up! Happy New Year, everybody!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Sassodoro so glad you are on #SommChat and look forward to your questions

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @AnneInVino @KeeperColl how long have you been mw? Whats your fav part of it all? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat I only became an MW this year in September, so it's all still new and I am still getting used to it!..

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @AndyOnFarmWine @KeeperColl #SommChat What I loved most about it were the amazing people on the course: both MWs & co-students! Mindblowing!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @AnneInVino What do you enjoy about being a #Wine consultant for #London restaurants? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat It gets me away from my desk and keeps me in the real world. I love choosing wines for a particular place & scenario!

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. @AnneInVino What R some of the biggest changes U have seen in #wine over the past 5 yrs? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat The biggest change is the pendulum swinging back from big and bold to far more nuanced wines.

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat Another one is the immense curiosity about more obscure varieties and regions as well as a reappraisal of classic...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat ...regions via young, enthusiastic, energetic and innovative winemakers.

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q. fr shy #SommChat peep: you won awards @mastersofwine ceremony - can you tell us which ones and were you surprised? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl @mastersofwine #SommChat I was THRILLED to win the prizes for best viticulture papers and best dissertatiion. As a gardener...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl @mastersofwine #SommChat ...I particularly loved the viticulture paper and learnt soooo much! My diss was a labour of love...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl @mastersofwine #SommChat I was thrilled to win a prize. I was overwhelmed to even have a pass, let alone win prizes!

Courtney Quinn ‏@Path2Wine Q. @anneinvino What's your favorite obscure variety in Austria? #SommChat

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @Path2Wine #SommChat It's not really that obscure but I adore Blaufränkisch - a peppery, fruity but always elegant red.

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: do you see major differences in the #Wine lists in #UK vs #US or #EUR and if so what are they?

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @demilove @KeeperColl @MasterSommUS #SommChat I am not really familiar with the @MasterSommUS programme - so I find it hard to comment or..

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @demilove @KeeperColl @MasterSommUS #SommChat or compare the qualifications. Since I never worked on a restaurant floor, I've always found

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @demilove @KeeperColl @MasterSommUS #SommChat .... the @mastersofwine qualification more relevant for myself.

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat Wherever you go you find a local bias but that is just as it should be! What strikes me is how global the wine ...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat really is. Even obscure little grower Champagnes are listed in San Francisco and small-time Californian ...

Anne Krebiehl MW ‏@AnneInVino @KeeperColl #SommChat wines can be found in London and Berlin! I love that! I have visions of world peace via wine!
