This web site is a compilation of the articles I've had published, interviews projects and seminars. After graduating with a degree in Enology from UC Davis in 1989, I began to investigate topics I felt were misunderstood or oversimplified. I interviewed winemakers from around the world as well as neuroscientists and experimental psychologists. My findings below raised questions about, and often contradicted, conventional wisdom.

Wine is immensely enjoyable; I hope you will find the information on this web site valuable.
