Born in the US state of Minnesota, journalist Burton Anderson was the editor of the "International Herald Tribune" in Paris. As a young journalist, he visited the famous Biondi-Santi winery in Tuscany in 1971 and was inspired to look into the subject of wine when tasting Brunello di Montalcino (Riserva 1964). This marked the beginning of his long career as a wine journalist. Anderson ended his work in Paris in 1977 and moved to Tuscany.
In 1980 he published his first work "Vino: The Wines & Winemakers of Italy" and regularly contributed to trade magazines in the USA (Food&Wine), England (The Friends of Wine), Italy (Civiltà del bere) and Germany(Merum). For two years, Anderson traveled all over Italy with their vineyards to create reliable wine lists. He earned a reputation as a leading authority on Italian wines and food and drink culture.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
