Storytellers who give lasting life to the people and places connected with wine
Wine writers have made a tremendous impact on both the wine industry and the public’s appreciation of wine. They are the storytellers who give lasting life to the people and places connected with wine, moving beyond regions, types of wines, and ratings to influence the very aesthetic and legacy of the industry. Wine writers offer unique insights into what made the wine industry what it is today. Not only does their writing help shape the wines that consumer choose, but it can influence which new technologies, techniques, and trends take root in the winemaking world.
The library is honored to hold the papers of writers including Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher, Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson, Charles Sullivan, Leon Adams, Bob Thompson, and others.
The library is actively expanding its Wine Writers collections. The Wine Writers Collection Development Policy outlines the principles upon which these collections are built.
