Bert + wine
‘The main thing is to enjoy it’
Bert Doornbos, on the finance staff at VHL Leeuwarden, collects wines. With a preference for clarets. He reckons he has about 1,000 of them, stacked up in crates in a rented storage space. These are wines that keep. Some are destined to be sold when the time is ripe - that is how this hobby funds itself. But the real point is the wine itself: 'Finding really good wines and enjoying them.' The good life - with friends to share it, as on the photo. What more could he want? A wine cellar of his own.
