Jeff Morgan is better known as a wine writer than a winemaker. He was West Coast Editor for Wine Spectator from 1995 through 1999 and released his cookbook: Dean & DeLuca; The Food and Wine Cookbook in 2002. Jeff and his wife, Jodie, have just released a second cookbook called The Working Parents Cookbook. The wordsmith is also currently Editor at Large for Wine Enthusiast. Next year, look for his newest tome, The Book of Rosé, which features over 200 pink wines from around the world.
But most people don’t know that Jeff started his wine career working in the cellar and vineyards of a small winery in Long Island, New York. Before that, he was a saxophone player---the bandleader at the Grand Casino in Monte Carlo, in Monaco. That’s where he developed a love for fine rosé.
Daniel Moore has made wine for two decades in Northern California. He recently finished a 13-year stint as winemaker at Lynmar Winery in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, where his Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were highly acclaimed. Today he has started a new winery, Arista, also in the Russian River Valley, where the focus will be on Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. View all SoloRosa Wines Wines
