ABOUT IAN TODD BLACKBURN
Wine educator, professional sommelier/host and Master of Wine student
Ian discovered the wine industry at the age of 21 while working for celebrity chefs such as Thomas Keller and Joachim Splichal in the best dining rooms in Los Angeles. The discovery of wine and the massive need for wine knowledge quickly engulfed Ian’s life and his passion redirected his career from restaurants and hotels to wineries and education. Fairly early in 1995, LearnAboutWine.com was born, becoming the first website dedicated to wine education.
With over 25 years of experience in the wine world, Ian is a published author (Wiley Publications, 2002), has 10 top winemaking vintages on his CV on BeekeeperCellars.com and is considered one of the best wine educators in the region. Ian’s push to evolve and his ability to pivot has produced a stratum of new concepts such as ZoomIntoWine.com (virtual education), Merchantofwine.com (the family’s online wine store), and now the return of dating in person with LearnAboutWine. com.
