Jameson Fink

Years of experience in the wine business and two liberal arts degrees have led me to write about (and dream about) food, wine, and travel. I call Seattle home, but Chicago is close to my heart. I'd rather be drinking Champagne and eating popcorn right now.

I am the Wine Editor at Foodista and was nominated for a 2013 Saveur Best Food Blog Award in the Wine/Beer Category.
