Jack’s interest in wine started when his great uncle Mick (from Adelaide Australia) explained the history of South Australian wines. In the years since Jack has visited countless wineries in Australia, France, Portugal and USA.  Providing a consumer’s perspective, Jack has been an invited guest panelist and regular speaker at wine events – and as co-director of a wine tasting group, that group’s member list has grown to over 1,600 enthusiasts.

Most recently, Jack was invited to be one of the Regional Advisors to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) Wine and Spirits Advisory Council.   The PLCB is one of the largest purchasors of wine and spirits in the world.
