ALAN GOLDFARB

ALAN GOLDFARB began his career in journalism as a sportswriter for Newsday in New York. He also wrote about sports for the Hearst San Francisco Examiner and the Associated Press. When he arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1973, he quickly realized that the No. 1 sport there was wine and food -- so he quickly crossed over.

Alan has been writing about wine for 16 years. He was the wine editor at the St. Helena Star in the heart of the Napa Valley where it is said, that assignment must be akin to covering Catholicism at the Vatican.

Alan’s work has also appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, the San Jose Mercury News, Wine Enthusiast, American Airlines’ American Way, and the Underground Wine Journal among many others. He is the contributor of the chapter, “Chewing on Chile,” in the Travelers’ Tales book, Adventures in Wine. He also wrote the biography of wine artist Thomas Arvid in his 2004 published book, Arvid: Redefining the Modern Still Life.

Mr. Goldfarb has also had his own radio show called “Wine & Food with Alan Goldfarb”, which was broadcast in San Francisco, Sacramento and in the East Bay of San Francisco.

For AppellationAmerica, Alan serves as Regional Editor for the Napa Valley, plus its 14 sub-appellations.
