About

Aaron Romano joined Wine Spectator’s Napa tasting department in 2012 and was promoted to associate tasting coordinator in 2017.

Romano grew up in Healdsburg, Calif., during the town's emergence as a food-and-wine destination. Inspired by the culture, he worked at numerous Sonoma County wineries and restaurants while studying English and non-fiction creative writing at Sonoma State University. He continues to call Northern California home, now with his wife and two children.
