How to Write About & Describe Wine with Marissa A. Ross

How to Write About & Describe Wine with Marissa A. Ross

Marissa A. Ross (@marissaaross) is a leisure enthusiast, writer, and wine drinker.

She’s also the author of the new book, Wine. All The Time.: The Casual Guide to Confident Drinking, writer of the wine blog WINE. All The Time, and is the wine editor for Bon Appétit.

In this episode, Marissa and I dig into a lot from her story and background and how she got into wine to becoming Bon Appétit’s wine editor. We also talk a lot about wine descriptions and how her’s work to describe an experience that the wine fits into rather than simply what she tastes. We get into the coverage of wine in Bon Appétit, her love and passion for the magazine, and the wise words that Adam Rapoport continuously bestows upon her.

Before we get into the episode, I want to invite you to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes here, and leave a review. Our goal is to grow a community of people passionate about wine in which we all can share and learn more. You subscribing and leaving a review on iTunes here, or your podcast player, helps more people just like yourself find the show.
