Hans Ulrich Kesselring: sad news
Heard the news that Hans Ulrich Kesselring, of Schlossgut Bachtobel (www.bachtobel.ch) has died at the terribly young age of 61. I met him in Switzerland a couple of years ago, and continued a correspondence. He was a deep thinker, and had a love for natural wine, but thought about this subject with scientific rigour. Many years ago, he spent some time with Jules Chauvet, the father of the current natural wine movement. While few will have tasted Kesselring's wines in the UK, I wanted to post this brief tribute to an extraordinary man with great insight into wine.
