Time again for another magazine - Issue 4, 2020. Below you’ll find links to the articles.
But first, a public service announcement for app users – the app is about to be switched off.
Introducing the Meininger Verlag app
If you’re a digital subscriber to Meininger’s Wine Business International and are used to reading in the app, you need to know that the app will cease to exist on 1st September 2020.
Instead, all the content will be merged into the Meininger Verlag app – Meininger Verlag is the publisher.
There is one small barrier to overcome, which is that the Meininger app is in German. Don’t worry! You can change the interface to English.
The magazine archive has been transferred into the app and all redemption codes will be valid, though you will have to use them again to activate your subscription.
The bad news is that if you bought any single issues from the app store, you won’t be able to access them. To recover your magazines, just send an email to [email protected] and you’ll receive a replacement code.
In fact, if you have any questions, drop a line to Sonja Spuhler at [email protected]
