AboutTyler Colman, PhD, wrote his dissertation on the political economy of the wine industry in France and the United States. So yes, he is a real doctor--he doesn't just play one on the web. On his site, DrVino.com, he makes good value wine recommendations and also looks at the world through the wine glass, bringing in diverse perspectives ranging from politics to economics to sports and pop culture. He also writes stories for print media in a freelance capacity, teaches wine classes at NYU and the University of Chicago, and gives talks and tastings for private parties and corporations. Colman lives in New York.
