Dan Clarke has been writing about wine, food and travel since 1984 when he founded the Foothill Wine Press, a bi-monthly tabloid. After a year, that publication evolved into the California Wine Press, a monthly consumer magazine which he published and edited for seven years.

 

In 1993 Dan created California Wine and Food, a four-color slick which was distributed to trade buyers around the world. Its editorial ran in English and in the first language of many of the readers (Spanish, French, German and Chinese). The venture was a critical success, but not a financial one. After publishing for a year-and-a-half, he folded the magazine, resurrecting the title several years later as an internet-only publication.

 

A third-generation Californian, Dan has enjoyed travel to many other wine producing regions in the United States and in Europe. He has enjoyed seeing the ancient winemaking methods in the Georgian region of Kakheti as well as the newest green and sustainable efforts closer to home. As editorof Taste California Travel he'll contribute a column here or there (maybe he'll even learn to call them blogs), but prefers to view his role as that of a “convener of talent.”
