Wine // spirits

I cover business and beverage trends in New York and Europe for The Tasting Panel, a nationally distributed magazine to the wine/spirits trade, and Sommelier News, which has an international distribution.

My passport bears stamps and wine stains: based in New York City, I’ve traveled to wine regions in France, Spain, Italy, Israel, Greece, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Romania, Argentina and Chile.
