About Scott A Rossell
As a researcher and archivist, Scott's personal approach to wine was different from most. Dissatisfied with existing wine scoring methods, he decided to develop a new, simpler, but more comprehensive system. In doing so, his research led him to explore countless wines at hosted tastings, vineyard tours, wine parties, auctions and industry sales events. Scott's perspective on wine is ideal for the "Quick Study" series because the information he shares in these pages were learned while in the "trenches" of the wine industry. Over the years, Scott has grown in knowledge and experience to become a prolific wine collector and respected connoisseur.
