About

MaryAnn Worobiec joined Wine Spectator in 1997 and was promoted to senior editor in 2013. She is lead taster for the wines of Australia and New Zealand, as well as California’s Rhône-style whites and Sauvignon Blancs.

A graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in political science and sociology, Worobiec worked for the Ohio House of Representatives before falling in love with wine. Her passion was sparked when visiting wineries in New York's Finger Lakes region in the early 1990s, where she discovered that wine doesn't have to be intimidating. She moved to Northern California to pursue her interest in wine and work alongside people passionate about what they do.
