Chef's Profile

W. Tish

Chef Photo


W. R. Tish has been writing and speaking on wine for two decades, with an approach that blends education and comedy. After editing Wine Enthusiast magazine (1988-’98), Tish designed tastings, seminars and dinners for a variety of Fortune 500 corporations and law firms—not to mention private parties that would make Bacchus green with envy. He has also led specialized seminars for the wine trade; done stand-up as a “recovering wine critic;” served as an auctioneer for charity wine auctions; has twice been a fellow at the Napa Valley Wine Writers Symposium; and he teaches at the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan. Currently managing editor of the wine-and-spirits-trade “bible” Beverage Media, Tish’s unique take on wine and food is captured in his motto, “I drink, therefore I am; I eat, therefore I am more.”
