Vino & Co – Tasting notes

When your brother is the top wine critic in Holland, recognised the world over for his expertise, it’s pretty hard not to jump on his bandwagon and enjoy the ride. Jeroen Hamersma’s brother Harold writes an annual wine guide and ‘has to’ taste up to 7000 wines a year. Being a supportive brother Jeroen thought it would be good to help. Around seven years ago while Jeroen was ‘helping’ he complained that the range of wines available in Ibiza was limited. So his brother told him to take some home with him. After a few days spent at wine shops and suppliers Jeroen left Holland to return to his home in Ibiza with around 600 bottles of wine. Enough, he thought, for a year.

Word got out quickly, of course, and soon friends started to visit more frequently. Jeroen sold a few bottles to them, before he knew it all 600 bottles were gone. So he then did what any self-confessed wine lover would do, and bought 1200 bottles, slowly turning his hobby into a business.
