After having to keep tight-lipped for the last three months, we are thrilled to announce that our editor, Erin James, was chosen by Wine Enthusiast magazine for its 2019 40 Under 40! Proudly representing the PNW, she is the only tastemaker on the list from Washington state, and one of five from the Northwest.

From the feature:

“James oversees the content and direction of two magazines that together cater to an audience of 68,000 readers throughout North America. Sip Northwest spotlights the booming wine, beer, spirit and cider scene in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia, and the food and travel excursions that revolve around it. Cidercraft, a national magazine, hones in on the growing North American cider industry. It offers insight on the latest bottles and producers to seek out and the trends that drive the category forward. James also authored the book Tasting Cider (Storey Publishing, August 2017).”
