DWWA 2013 Alsace Judging Panel
Thierry Meyer was born and raised in France. He began writing about wine in 1999, using the newly emerging wine forums to share tasting notes and insights into the wines of Alsace, his home region. In 2001, Thierry started his signature dinner series dedicated to pairing Alsace wines with fine Alsatian food. Thierry founded L’Oenothèque Alsace in 2006 and launched the website oenoalsace.com, one of the most comprehensive modern resources dedicated to Alsace wines, and at the same time started to promote a program of structured Alsace wine masterclasses and dinners. From 2007 to 2011, Thierry was contributing editor of Bettane & Desseauve Guide des Vins de France, the influential French wine guide, and he is a member of Confrerie Saint Etienne d’Alsace, which gives him numerous occasions to taste Alsace wines which are up to 80 years of age.
