With over 25-years of experience traveling the wine world, Ian is a published author (Wiley Publications, 2002), has 10 vintages of top level winemaking on his resume at Beekeeper Cellars, and is considered one of the region's best wine educators. Ian’s push to evolve and his ability to pivot has produced a strata of new concepts such as, (virtual education), (the family’s online wine store), and now the return of in-person gatherings with - using all the great gathering spots in LA as potential venues.
