Karen MacNeil is one of the most celebrated personalities in wine. She is the author of the best-selling wine book: The Wine Bible, which has sold over one million copies. She is the only American to receive all major wine awards given in the English language. TIME Magazine called Karen “America’s Missionary of the Vine” and she also received an Emmy for her PBS television series Wine, Food and Friends. In today’s podcast we sit down to discuss her journey creating one of wine writing’s most pivotal pieces. She also shares her thoughts on the future of wine communication.
