MEET YOUR HOST
Vince is a certified sommelier and founder of V is for Vino. While pursing a rock ‘n’ roll career as a guitarist and vocalist, he fell in love with wine while working at the bars and upscale restaurants that paid the bills. As he pursued further wine knowledge, he realized there was no place for the “average Joe” to learn about wine casually (see: without a textbook); and thus, V is for Vino was born. Wine “info-tainment” for the casual wine drinker.
Vince runs every aspect of V is for Vino, from the production and editing, to the writing and hosting of the show, to the IT and web design. His passion for wine stems from his desire to pass his knowledge of it onto others.
