Jameson Fink has been working in the wine industry and blogging about wine since 2004. Saveur Magazine nominated his site, jamesonfink.com, for a 2013 Best Food Blog Award in the Wine/Beer Category. He is a tireless advocate for year-round rosé consumption and enjoys a glass of Champagne alongside a bowl of popcorn. He has visited vineyards and wineries in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Greece. (Also California, Washington, Oregon, New York, and Virginia.) He likes t-shirts and jeans with Grape Collective wine. He has ten years of experience in the retail wine business. He has worked in restaurants and bakeries in Flagstaff and Chicago. His decade in Seattle was spent entirely on Capitol Hill. Find out 17 Things he’ll Miss About Seattle. He is also fond of beer and cider. Ooh, and cocktails. (Get a recipe for a drink that has a float of red wine on top.) He will dazzle or dismay you with an overabundance of parenthetical asides and exclamation points. He would rather be drinking Champagne. He loves v-neck sweaters, though recently he has leaned more crew neck. He is happy that you read all of these, and hope you’ll visit often.
