Introduction
I started drinking fine wines in high school.  I was allowed a single glass of wine with dinners on holidays.  It took until I was in my early 20s before I started exploring wine on my own.  

I studied microbiology at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA.  While there I dabbled in a couple of wine classes and took a quarter off to work as a lab tech at Laetitia which I loved.  Since then I've worked in four other wineries from the 300 ton Akarua Vineyards in New Zealand to the 122,000 ton Trinchero Family Estates (Sutter Home). 

I started my blog because I work in biotech these days and I missed the wine industry too much to stay completely out of it.

I have a monthly wine column in the six Marinscope newspapers.

Sample Information:  
If you are interested in sending me wine, books, or products to review, please contact me at Brian@JonesingForWine.com for a shipping address. If you decide to send me products, then you acknowledge and accept the following two conditions:

1.) I typically only review products I really like or are flawed. I won't say something sucks because I don't like the style of it, but if you have a wine with lots of brettanomyces flavors then don't send it to me.

2.) All products, including wine, that I receive as a press sample will be clearly indicated as such on the blog.
