About

Tim Fish joined Wine Spectator’s Napa office in 2001 and has been a senior editor since 2013. He is lead taster for the wines of Oregon and Washington, California Rhône-style reds and Zinfandels, and U.S sparkling wines.

Fish grew up in small-town Indiana, helping his dad at the grill with steaks cut by his butcher grandfather and taking cooking lessons from his mom. He studied journalism at Western Kentucky University, and after college worked for newspapers in the Midwest before moving to Sonoma County in 1989 to become the food and wine editor for the Press Democrat, covering Northern California wine country. He now lives in the town of Sonoma and has recently become a grandfather.
