Ian D'Agata: a Wine Scholar Like No Other
With Andrew Jefford, Ian D'Agata
Jun 15 2021

Summary:

Our sixth edition of WSG Live features the wine scholar and author Ian D'Agata!

Guest: Ian D'Agata

Ian D'Agata is a wine scholar like no other.  He initially studied medicine (at four universities including Rome, Harvard and Montreal in his native Canada) and worked in pediatric medicine, specialising in pediatric gastroenterology; this background in science and scientific research informs all of his work.  He pursued medicine and wine concurrently -- but eventually, wine won out, and for most of the last two decades he has lived and worked in Italy, writing the multi-award-winning Native Wine Grapes of Italy (in 2014) and Italy's Native Wine Grape Terroirs (in 2019).  He has worked for Decanter and Vinous as well as teaching Oenology at the University of New Mexico and tasting and wine culture at New York University; he co-founded the Vinitaly International Academy and directed the International Wine Academy in Rome.  Since December 2019, he has been Chief Scientific Officer at TasteSpirit, a leading Chinese wine and food media company and wine school, and is Editor in Chief of the TerroirSense Wine Review.  He now lives in Shanghai, China.
