Bruce Cass



Bruce Cass began teaching wine in the Bay Area in 1972. Now, nearly forty years and tens of thousands of happy students later, he is folding the Bruce Cass Wine Lab into a new business which will produce self-guided tours of California’s top wine regions as smart-phone applications. Eventually there will also be a print book and an e-book with 3-dimensional maps of prestigious vineyard sites. Bruce hopes this new venture will continue to make exploring wine come alive for his students in a fun, informative, unpretentious environment.

Internationally recognized for his expertise on small-volume California wine producers, Bruce has earned accolades for his work as a wine educator, editor, freelance wine writer and wine judge. He has traveled extensively doing winery research in Europe, the Pacific Northwest, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina.
