Anderson has written and spoken with eloquence on all aspects of connoisseurship, but none more so than the enjoyment of wine and spirits. “I grew up in the wine country near Santa Barbara,” he says. “I was always fascinated by the strange alchemy that transforms grapes into fine wine, and I became a collector. By another strange alchemy, that avocation became a vocation, and I’m glad it did.”
