I am proud to announce that I wrote my first column for VinePair.

As VinePair is a publication I have great admiration for, I am honored to […]
It was a privilege to contribute to Blake Gray’s great piece on the Provi antitrust lawsuit. There will be a lot more to come on this lawsuit, I can’t wait to see how it plays out.

Without this […]
Although I wish the Court would have granted cert in Lebamoff, I enjoyed the opportunity to discuss the case and wine shipping in general with Wine Searcher.
I am honored to contribute to a Wine Searcher article on the U.S. Supreme Court wine shipping case. A great analysis by Blake Gray.

It would be great to have […]
