I loved food from the moment I found out there was more to put into my mouth than milk and my thumb. I began to love wine when I first ventured beyond Manischewitz. Now I especially like combining good food and good wine.

When I was freelancing for Food & Wine magazine, I started to write about food. Some years later, I earned my Sommelier Certificate, atop the World Trade Center, from the Sommelier Society of America. Around the same time, a Food & Wine editor gave me my first wine-story assignment, and since then I’ve practically left food behind–writing about it, that is–and have been writing mostly about wine.

I’ve written for many publications. When I get lucky, my stories appear in Time. They’ve been published in other magazines, including Food & Wine, Hemispheres, Flavor & Fortune, Foods from Spain News, Wines from Spain News, Spain Gourmetour, Travel & Leisure, Diversion, New York Woman, Joe Franklin’s Nostalgia and Events USA. My articles have appeared online–at time.com, portfolio.com and seniorwomen.com–and in newspapers, thanks to the New York Times Syndicate. Last, and maybe least, I contributed three short pieces to The Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink, published by Oxford University Press.

I won an APEX award for excellence for the story “What’s for Breakfast,” about many of the different breakfasts around the world, which was published in Hemispheres.

Now I look forward to writing for my own online wine site. I hope to help you make sense of the overwhelming possibilities so you can make smart choices. And I’m especially interested in good-value wines, food-and-wine pairing, alternative packaging and informative  wine books.  Sharon Kapnick
