Matthias was born and grew up in a small town in Lower Austria 130 km northwest of Vienna. He first attended the school for tourism and hotel management in Krems and then studied business administration at the University for Economics and Business Administration in Vienna.

During his school time Matthias fell in love with wine. Having learnt the theoretical background of the important grapes and wine regions in the world and enjoying the fantastic Wachauer Riesling and Grüner Veltliner spurred Matthias to dive deeper into the world of (fine) wine. Before the birth of his two sons, Matthias visited many of the important wine regions all over the world, which is a wonderful opportunity to get in touch with different cultures and interesting people all over the world.
