Foreword by Petri

La vie en rose, who wouldn't want that? We at WINELIFE do, which is why pink is this edition's theme. Magda van der Rijst and pro taster Tim van der Slik therefore filled the glassware with many shades of organic rosé from all over Europe. More pinkpower comes from Eric Kuster, founder of the AIX Rosé empire in Provence. 

But rosé is not the only spring wine. Read in the Buying guide by Evelijn van Heuven on the refined and fresh wines of Alsace. This particular region might be just too far for a short vinous trip. Fortunately, it is only a few hours away for a weekend in wine country Luxembourg sprinkled with crémants.

But you can also hit the road by diving into your own kitchen. Did you know that Spanish cuisine is a fusion of many food cultures? Taste your way through Europe with Raquel Palla Lorden's recipes. If you are a fan of Italy anyway, you will be in for a treat with the report on the pinot grigio paradise Trentino. Not far from there, man of taste Sandro Bottega tackles it particularly cleverly with his shiny packaged proseccos. 

For lovers of intense wines, we wrote the story about the Chilean wines of Vinã Los Vascos. It is advisable to immediately read the expert's tips on how best to store these wines. Or open immediately. 

Whatever you do, make it a beautiful spring.
