Keith is a rare breed: a full time wine guru. His work on the national and regional wine scene has earned him a reputation as a slightly nutty professor with a razor-sharp intellect.
Nationally, he is known for his widely read wine column in the Daily Beast; his contributions to the 2010 edition of Barron's New Wine Lovers Companion; and his co-authorship of the upcoming book Corked & Forked (Running Press).
In Philadelphia, he is best known for founding the Wine School, creating the Philly Uncorked show, and being the wine columnist for Philadelphia Style Magazine. Oh, and for his two lovable mutts --Rosie and Coco-- whom are always hanging out at the school with him.
Keith's resume also includes being employed as a winemaking consultant, an expert witness in wine-related litigation proceedings, an executive sous chef, a wine distributor, and a journalist for a daily newspaper.
Keith has been interviewed by dozens of national and local media outlets, including NPR, Wine Spectator Online, Wall Street Journal, Bon Appetit Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, and many more.
"The Wine School of Philadelphia is bringing the beverage of kings back to the masses."
"Fun, energetic and entertaining, but it also provides barrels of useful information."
Eric Miller, Winemaker at Chaddsford Winery
