On the recent Port Explorer’s Tour, our guest Luiz Alberto, a Master of Wine candidate shared his wine website with us. It is a fine compilation of wine blog, travel site, provides loads of useful info on wine appellations and grape varieties from around the world, offers food and wine pairing suggestions and possesses a very talented staff of wine professionals involved in producing content for the site.

Luiz is on a mission to join the ranks of the other twenty six Masters of Wine in the USA, (288 MW’s worldwide) and has been studying, tasting and traveling around the wine world to achieve his goal. Originally, from Brazil with roots in Italy too, Luiz now lives in New Jersey with his family and is a partner in an import company unrelated to wine. Luiz is also involved touring European countries with Oscar Quevedo making presentations on Port and Douro wines and he visits Portugal frequently.

Luiz began his The Wine Hub project in 2003, and as Founder and CEO, he launched the website in 2006. Luiz’s expertise in wine is impressive, as is his photography and easy going personality. Please have a look at his fine website and I’m sure you’ll find it a great resource for future reference:
