Welcome to my blog.

My name is Algirdas Pateckas. I am a wine expert and writer. I pride myself in being first to write on wines and drinks culture in independent Lithuania, along with other ways of educating on wine such as seminars and wine events.

I am now a regular contributor to a number of magazines; I also provide consulting and training services to the drinks and hospitality sector. I frequently travel in wine countries and continue learning and collecting information on my subject.

I hope that my blog can contribute to the promotion of wine culture as a counterbalance to immoderate consumption of alcohol and as a prudent way to enjoy life’s pleasures.ap
