I am a Partner and Principal Critic at WineAlign, one of the most read sources of wine and spirits information in Canada. WineAlign is a free service.

For WineAlign I taste thousands of wines and spirits each year and I travel extensively all over the world of wine and spirits. It is at WineAlign where I maintain Steve's Top 50 Value Picks, a selection of LCBO Wines and Vintages Essentials. Once a month I produce Top Values at the LCBO. This is a report on changes to the Top 50. Almost 100,000 people have registered to receive this monthly report and typically over 8,000 of them read each one and make a smart buying decision as a consequence.

I travel frequently to wine producing regions all over the world, something that I have been doing for most of my adult life; and sometimes I take people with me. You can see a list of upcoming tours here.

I contributed to Wine Access, Canada's national wine magazine, from 2001 until 2013 when it ceased publication. Most of my wine reviews are also posted on Twitter.
