For over 40 years, I’ve been hosting wine classes and tastings from basic courses to vertical tastings of the premium wines of the world. I’m the founder of the Los Angeles School of Wines, editor and publisher of Martin’s Guide to Wine Bargains, owner of Vintage Wine Appraisers, and wine editor of Beverage Industry News. I’ve lectured on wines and conducted classes at Cal Poly Pomona, UCLA Extension, and the USC. As I’m not associated with any commercial establishment, many of the wines featured in my classes and tastings come from my own cellar. I’m also part of the longest meeting wine group in LA. We’ve met almost every Saturday for dinner and wine (for the last couple of years at Lucques) for 42 years.
