#Davos and the new #wine order

By Gideon Rachman

Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple. Now the World Economic Forum has driven the wine tasters out of Davos. In previous years, one of the highlights of the forum was a small but spectacular tasting of fine wines. But last year Klaus Schwab, the forum’s mastermind, decided that guzzling first-growth clarets was an inappropriate way of celebrating the global economic meltdown, and the wine-tasting was cancelled. We all hoped that this was a temporary aberration, but apparently not. The new Puritanism is here to stay; Davos wine tastings are off the menu until further notice.

But you cannot deter dedicated wine tasters that easily. On the first night a wine tasting was organised by former Davos employees who have formed a new organisation called the Wine Forum.
