About Jeff Alexander

A co-founder of Pennsylvania Vine Company, Jeff has written about wine and related pursuits through his Main Line Vine blog and Examiner.com, where he is also known as the Philadelphia Wine Examiner. Based outside of Philly and father of a future gourmand, Jeff is a photographer, runner and PR pro who has drained many worldwide destinations of wine, beer and spirits including Europe, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, Argentina, Central America and Alaska. Bottles that hold his attention tend to emanate from the Rhone, Alsace, New York, California and, increasingly, Pennsylvania. He is a devout acidhound and will always take a glass of Riesling in a pinch.
