Ray Isle is the Executive Wine Editor of Food & Wine and the Wine & Spirits Editor of Travel + Leisure. He writes Food & Wine’s monthly “Bottle Service” column and oversees wine content for both brands as well as contributing regular print and online features about wine, spirits, and wine-related travel. His articles about wine, beer, food, and spirits have appeared in a wide range of national publications, as well as in Best American Food Writing.
The World in a Wine Glass draws on Isle’s deep knowledge and genuine appreciation of winemaking and takes us on a tour of independently owned wineries around the world, bringing the local vintners to life and describing the different wines they produce in vivid detail. Focusing on wines people can afford, rather than $500 rarities, Isle shows us where and how to find the most interesting bottles out there today.
