Joshua Greene (wine)
Having graduated from Princeton University in 1981, Greene pursued a career in the magazine publication industry. After a period of acting as a consultant for Wine & Spirits, Greene eventually purchased the magazine in 1989.
Greene has been an outspoken critic of the 100 point wine rating system, though he has himself applied it in Wine & Spirits since 1994. He has stated, "I don’t think it's a very valuable piece of information", and, "Even though ratings of individual wines are meaningless, people think they are useful", although adding, "One can look at the average ratings of a spectrum of wines from a certain producer, region or year to identify useful trends". Greene will publish one Wine & Spirits issue annually which features no scores.
