Dining with the author of How to Buy Fine Wines: Practical Advice for the Investor and Connoisseur (Christie's Collectors Guides) usually costs even more than the precious white truffles at your meal. Special wine tastings with the master are even auctioned at Sotheby's from time to time. At Bellasera it is all part of the wonderful experience in November.

Joseph Ward is one of the world’s most authoritative wine writers. He has been the CondeNast Wine Editor for over 10 years and has written for leading newspapers and magazines in the worldwide including The Washington Post, The International Herald Tribune, and Smart Money.

Joseph spends four months each year visiting wine regions, and talking and tasting with prominent vintners. He is glad to share his vast knowledge with fellow aficionados as he believes that dining and wines are a lifestyle not just a tech-sheet, the latter being easy enough to learn. He goes beyond the hype to show Epicureans not just how to learn but how to live.
