I'm a longtime journalist specializing in wine food and travel. After a career in broadcast journalism (Portland, Seattle, Baltimore), I wrote the first guidebooks to the wine country
of the Pacific Northwest (Washington Oregon, Idaho), then started a company that organized private luxury wine tours in France. I added Italy as well in recent years, and am the Director of Wine Tours for The International Vineyard.
In 2011, I was awarded the Collio Prize (Premio Collio) for wine writing. It was the first time the award had been given for articles written in English, and for articles published online.
