Steve Noel lives in Reno and is a viticulturist, winemaker, wine writer, publisher (at childrenofthegrape.com) and wine-industry speaker. Steve has visited wineries on four different continents, as well as wineries in more than 20 states and several Canadian provinces. Steve is a member of the Nevada Grape Growers and Winemakers Association, an Aragón Wine Expert, and a B.C. Wine Ambassador; he loves to spread the word that wine should be fun and enjoyable, not stuffy and confusing. While Steve spends his days living in the software world, he dreams of a day when he can ride a wine train from wine region to wine region, enjoying all they have to offer.
