About Ian Blackburn

When you're raised in a military family, drinking wine may not be the first idea that comes to mind, but that is what happened! Ian discovered the wine industry at the ripe age of 21 and didn't consider it a career option, but working for top chefs in the formidable dining rooms of early 1990s Los Angeles blew doors open - leading Ian to a career in wine education.

Working with the world’s greatest wine brands for most of his adult-life; leading wine tours and culinary adventures around the world; Ian loves to share his story and his passion. When Covid shut down wineLA’s event business, Ian pivoted full circle and restarted digitally and launched as a way to bring his version of wine education and entertainment to a limitless audience. With his family’s wine store, virtual wine tastings with wine delivered "at home" provide a pathway, and now we celebrate the return of live events!
