Wine Without Worry with Jameson Fink
Jameson Fink is the Wine Editor for Foodista.com and also manages his own wine writing, blogging, and social media consulting company. He entered the wine business and the world of blogging in 2004 after turning his curiosity and enthusiasm about food and wine into a full-time vocation and passion.
Since moving from Chicago to Seattle that year he has worked at one of the largest retail wine shops in the Pacific Northwest as their European Buyer, ran an eclectic beer and wine department at a large grocery store in the hip Capitol Hill neighborhood, and presently works at a charming wine bar, Bottlehouse, in the quiet neighborhood of Madrona. He’s traveled to vineyards in Chile, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, France, Italy, Portugal, and Greece, as well as in Washington State, California, Oregon, and Virginia.
Jameson led a Food and Wine Pairing session at this year’s International Food Blogger Conference, has been a “Featured Foodie” on Key Ingredient, and has lent his expert opinion to two features in Honest Cooking. He has also contributed his thoughts to pieces by Allecia Vermillon, Food and Drink Editor of Seattle Met, and Hanna Raskin, Food Critic for Seattle Weekly. He spent a month living on an organic family farm and cidery, writing about his experience in the November/December 2012 issue of Edible Seattle. The Fall 2012 issue of SIP Northwest magazine features his thoughts on the parallels between coffee and wine.
He loves Champagne with popcorn, and all things rosé. Nominated for Best Overall Wine Blog at the 2012 Wine Blog Awards, you can keep up with his grape adventures on his personal blog, jamesonfink.com.
