The wine magazine "Merum - The magazine for wine and olive oil from Italy" was founded in 1993 by today's editor-in-chief Andreas März in Basel. Today, Merum is fully produced in Italy and printed in Aachen. He is the only German speaking medium, which has exclusively Italian wines to the topic. The publishing house Merumpress AG has its headquarters in Grüningen (Zurich, Switzerland), while the editors work and live in Tuscany. The magazine is published six times a year and consists of two parts: the main issue with short news from the Italian wine, but also olive oil and agriculture scene and reports on wine regions, to analysis, columns and interviews with Opinionleaders. Each issue is accompanied by "Merum Selezione", a separate one wine guide
, in which about 2,000 annually wine reviews
and tasting notes of Italian wines will be published. There is also an online portal.
