About the Author
Jeff is an award winning bartender as well as a columnist and author. His best-selling "What Do You Know About Wine?" calendar series is in its fourth year (Pomegranate Communications) and his weekly column, Barfly, has graced the pages of newspapers from the San Jose Mercury News to the Tallahassee Democrat. His work has also appeared in San Francisco Magazine, the National Geographic Assignment Blog, Here Magazine and a whole host of others. Jeff is a graduate of the San Francisco State School of Journalism, where he was nominated for a Hearst Journalism Award, and where the Dean once responded to his choice of career with a less than enthusiastic "Food Journalism!?!" Jeff's writing style has been described as casually erudite (whatever that means). Currently he spends his time in Northern California, reading, writing and researching the food and beverage world. Especially the researching part.
