Born at the North Sea coast of Schleswig-Holstein, Sascha hasn't really grown up with wine. On shore you drink pils and rye and give turists the runaround. Then, after crossing the Hamburg border to the south, his knowledge broadened more and more, culminating in a trip to the wine growing region of Alsace - a trip that lead - so he says - to his awakening. He then went on studying numerous wine menus, spent years working in bars and restaurants, until finally, together with Andreas Klöckner he invented what's now called Goldhahn und Sampson, being as pleased as punch about its wine department expanding on a daily basis.
