Toni Askitis and wein.plus agree on long-term cooperation


Cooperation in the production of videos on Instagram, in the use of editorial content as well as the wide-reaching wein.plus newsletter.

The European wine platform wein.plus and Toni Askitis have agreed on a long-term cooperation. The sommelier, moderator and social media professional from Düsseldorf will produce two videos a month for the Instagram channel #wein.plus in cooperation with the wein.plus editorial team. With his approach "wine is uncomplicated", he will teach beginners the necessary basic knowledge about wine and wine enjoyment in a casual way. For this purpose, Askitis will use the editorial content of the "Beginner's Knowledge" section on wein.plus. Furthermore, he will present a monthly question and answer format on #weinplus and will appear as a speaker at the wein.plus conference in 2022.

In return, wein.plus will present Toni Askitis' work with editorial contributions, on social media as well as in the newsletter, which is one of the widest-reaching in the European wine industry. In addition, further joint projects are being planned.

"I am looking forward to bringing a breath of fresh air into the wine world with this", Toni Askitis explains the cooperation. "wein.plus covers a lot of the complex world of wine. The platform's Lexicon, for example, helped me personally a lot in researching my book 'Wine is uncomplicated - 50 questions to advance your wine skills'. Be excited for what's to come!"

"Toni Askitis has been our partner of choice for a long time"

"We have a long friendship with Toni Askitis," says wein.plus-co-managing director Alexander Schreck, "and now we have finally found a format that fits both of us perfectly. The videos will not only advance our work, but also convey knowledge about wine to a young, open-minded audience. This is urgently needed in our rather conservative industry." The competent editorial content of wein.plus would thus get a completely new approach. "Toni is the ideal person for this approach," emphasises wein.plus founder Utz Graafmann, "he has been our ideal partner for a long time The first posts and videos are to be launched in a few weeks.
