Gabe Sasso has spent many of his vacations the last 2 decades traveling to wine regions. His curiosity about wine started, due in no small part, from being surrounded by a large Italian family. Most of his Uncles, his Father and his Grandfathers were all home winemakers.

Additionally, he’s a freelance writer and the Wine Reviewer for Bullz-Eye.com.
