Vinography Aroma Card Now Available in German

aroma_card.thumb.gifWhen I published the Vinography Aroma Card one year ago I had no idea that it was going to be such a hit. I had been thinking of doing it as a little project for years after getting fed up with seeing all these aroma and flavor guides set up as round wheels in a way that made absolutely no sense to me.

I guess I wasn't alone in that frustration. Apparently no one else in the world has a round wallet either. The original card has been downloaded thousands of times since it was posted a year ago.

Today I'm happy to announce that it has been translated into its sixth language, German, thanks to the generous assistance of Iris Rutz-Rudel, who is both a fellow wine blogger, and the owner of a small winery in the Olargues region of southern France known as Domaine Lisson.

I was concerned that German would prove especially difficult, mostly because of the length of many German words compared to their English counterparts. Those with keen eyes will note that indeed, I had to juggle some things around in the layout to be able to fit in some lovely terms like "schwarze johannisbeere" (black currant). As with other languages, there were a few terms that had to be dropped as there was just no way to translate them.

This German version joins the English, French, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese versions that are already on offer.

If you find this card valuable, I'd like to ask for a voluntary donation. Most other such tools are about five bucks plus shipping (OK, so theirs are laminated). Give me a dollar or three or five, but if you like it and use it, I'd love a token of your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the donate button below.

Regardless, I hope you enjoy these cards and find them useful in your wine tasting.
