In addition to being an On-Air Host for my global radio show WINE TALK WITH STU THE WINE GURU, I am also a wine journalist, and reviewer for SIMPLY THE BEST MAGAZINE, GLASS OF BUBBLY, HOLLYWOOD CIRCLE MAGAZINE, and many wine related websites. My wine articles and reviews have been read all over the world via the internet.
I am a Wine Judge for the AMERICAN FINE WINE COMPETITION held in Miami every year to find the best of the best the United States has to offer in every wine varietal and every category. We blind taste approximately 850 wines over two days.
You may also find me on TV, with appearances on NBC's NONSTOP FOODIES SHOW, CNBC WORLD'S WINE PORTFOLIO SHOW, PBS's CHECK PLEASE SOUTH FLORIDA, KEY WEST KITCHEN SHOW, and numerous other web based TV shows.
I have consulted for different wine and whisky companies from Chile to Taiwan on many aspects of branding, sales and marketing.
I've been in the wine business for years, and have studied the origins of wine, and tasted them in vineyards all over the world. My experience and passion for wine is why, even though I have worked in the industry, I have never considered it work. Whether conducting an interview of a famous wine maker, top chef, or celeb on my radio show, or writing a wine article, or hosting a wine tasting, I always bring my "A" game and a smile.
A little history about me...
It started back in the mid 90's when I was in the music business, with my first trip to Northern California. During a business lunch, on a suggestion from a prospective client, I tried cabernet sauvignon and liked it. From there, the beginning of my wine journey started, and it has taken me to most of the wine producing countries in the years that followed.
I spent some years in the wine trade where I honed my palate. I prided myself on being keenly adept at learning clients palates and making the right recommendations.
I enjoy hosting wine tastings, and successfully helping wine enthusiasts build their wine collections. I have a passion for matching the right wine for the right occasion and culinary setting. One thing has never changed from back then, and that is, I still constantly challenge myself to learn the different smells and tastes of as many of the grape varietals as I can.
Its all about the education of wine, and sharing everything I have learned in an entertainining way with you. Its what wine brings to the conversation that is what I am all about. That is why I write, talk about on radio and host TV shows all about it.
