Wine & Spirits is an American wine magazine. With offices in New York and San Francisco, the magazine publishes eight issues annually.[1]

History and profile[edit]

The magazine was started under the name Winestate's Wine & Spirits Buying Guide.[2] In October 1984 it changed to Wine & Spirits.[2] Joshua Greene acquired Wine & Spirits in 1989.[2][1] In addition to publisher and editor-in-chief Joshua Greene, among the contributors are Tara Q. Thomas, Patrick Comiskey, Patricio Tapia, Peter Liem, with additional contributing writers such as David Schildknecht, Fiona Morrison MW, Bill St. John and Victor de la Serna.
