Career wine professional Randy Caparoso has been bylining newspaper wine columns, magazine stories and online blogs since 1981. Over 90% of what he writes about is from the perspective of contemporary foods. Not coincidentally, he's made his living over the past thirty years in restaurant/hospitality wine management, and has also managed a couple of retail stores and wine bars along the way.
A career highlight was as a Founding Partner and VP of the James Beard Award winning Roy's restaurant group; with whom he garnered Sante magazine's first "Grand Award/Wine & Spirits Professional of the Year" (1998). He was also twice named by Ron Wiegand MW/MS as a Restaurant Wine "Wine Marketer of the Year" (1991 & 1999).
Caparoso has also served as a wine judge and speaker in numerous capacities, and in 1997 was commended by the Academy of Wine Communications for Excellence in Wine Writing and Encouragement of Higher Industry Standards.
