Bruce Sanderson joined Wine Spectator in 1993 and has been a senior editor since 1999. He is lead taster for the wines of Burgundy in France and Piedmont and Tuscany in Italy.
Sanderson was born and raised in Canada. An early career as a model and actor took him to Germany, where he developed a passion for wine. He moved to New York City in 1990 and began working in the wine trade. After working at specialty retailer Burgundy Wine Company and as a sommelier at Windows on the World restaurant, he joined Wine Spectator’s tasting department.
When not visiting wine regions, he enjoys listening to music (especially live jazz), cooking and dining out in New York and relaxing at the Jersey shore.
