Born in 1980 and raised in Halifax, England, Kris Chislett now resides in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife Denise, their cat Maisy and his overflowing collections of Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Decanter magazines.
When it comes to wine, Kris drinks only the most prestigious, most expensive wines from around the world (when someone else is paying). The rest of the time he keeps his wine purchases to around $20, $30 if it’s a special occasion. He has been in the hospitality industry since the age of 15, working everything from fine dining banquets serving English dignitaries, right through to McDonalds (he lasted 2 weeks under the Golden Arches).
Kris is one of only a few Certified Sommeliers (Court of Master Sommeliers) and Certified Specialist of Wine (Society of Wine Educators) in North-East Florida. He created BlogYourWine.com (and its networked websites) in order to give people the resource he never had: an unpretentious, user-friendly, fun, interactive guide to the world of wine.
