How Wine Affects The World with Brian McClintic, MS


How Wine Affects The World with Brian McClintic

Brian McClintic, MS is the founder of Viticole, a travel blog and wine club creating custom collaborations with winemakers around the world.

Brian McClintic is a Master Sommelier and documentary film star of the feature length SOMM, the follow up SOMM: Into the Bottle, and now Somm 3, coming out later in 2018. After 15 years in hospitality, spanning wine destinations such as the Little Nell in Aspen, Brian co-founded Les Marchands Wine Bar & Merchant in Santa Barbara, where he was named “The Wine Guy to Hire” by Departures magazine and among the “40 Under 40 Tastemakers” by Wine Enthusiast.

Bitten by the travel bug in recent years, McClintic launched Viticole in 2016--an online wine club and travel blog, focusing on organically-farmed domestic and import selections.

The Viticole Wine Clubs are the only way to access Master Sommelier Brian McClintic's monthly wine selections. Every winemaker Brian collaborates with farms organically. All the wines offered will be exclusive to Viticole – special bottlings, both red and white, that Brian personally curates from around the world.
