…childhood summers with his wine-loving grandfather in the South of France, Moritz Bak’s fascination with the world of wine began. Devoting himself to the study of wine and winemaking, he made pilgrimages to some of the world’s greatest vineyards, and when he was ready returned to the south of France armed with both knowledge and a vision.
