Founder and writer Steve McIntosh traces his imbibing expertise back to the early 1990s as a home brewer, and later in the mid-nineties when he began traveling to wine country destinations the world over. In the decades since, he has visited countless breweries, wineries, and distilleries, attended numerous trade seminars, and amassed a discerning palate for quality beverage products.
In 2004 Steve sat for and earned a certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers. In 2010, he was a participant at the 2010 Symposium for Professional Wine Writers at Meadowood Napa Valley® - an extraordinary program for journalists specializing in the craft and business of writing about food, wine, and travel.
Striving to be a more thoughtful and generous father, husband, and community member, Steve lives with his family in Columbus, Ohio.
