Kerin O'Keefe Named New Italian Editor for Wine Enthusiast Magazine


Date: 04/22/13

Now in its 25th year of publishing, Wine Enthusiast Magazine announces the newest member of its global tasting panel, Kerin O'Keefe.

"Kerin O'Keefe is one of the foremost authorities on Italian wine in the world and is universally respected by the Italian wine community for her prolific, brilliant writing style and her professionalism, which made her the perfect choice to join our Wine Enthusiast global team of tasters," notes Adam Strum, editor and publisher of Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

O'Keefe moved from the United States to Italy in 1991 and has written regularly on Italian wine for Decanter, World of Fine Wine and on WineSearcher.com. She is a former contributing editor for Wine News magazine, and is the author of Franco Biondi Santi: The Gentleman of Brunello (Veronelli Editore, 2005), a recipient of a Gourmand Wine Book Award. She also won the Premio Consorzio Brunello di Montalcino in 2008 for her cover article "Brunello de-con-structed" which appeared in the Oct-Nov 2007 issue of Wine News. Her latest book, Brunello di Montalcino: Understanding and Appreciating One of Italy's Greatest Wines (University of California Press, 2012), was shortlisted for the André Simon Award.

As Italian editor for Wine Enthusiast, O'Keefe will be responsible for reviewing all Italian wines, as well as providing key editorial content, news and trends from the country for the print magazine in the U.S., the rapidly growing Chinese digital edition, and the Wine Enthusiast website, WineMag.com.

O'Keefe joins Wine Enthusiast's 12-person tasting team, which combined offers more than 100 years of wine journalism and tasting experience, and reviews as many as 20,000 wines per year.
