Jon Thorsen, the voice behind Reverse Wine Snob shares a common philosophy with Santa Maria Valley about drinking wine; that it’s possible to drink great tasting wine without breaking the bank.

As Thorsen writes on his blog,

“There’s certainly nothing wrong with being enthusiastic about wine, right? It’s the pretentious and self-important parts of wine snobbery that most of us can’t stand — the belittling of someone’s chosen drink and the supremely false belief that expensive is always better. My solution to this problem is to simply turn wine snobbery upside down — to become a “Reverse Wine Snob.” I am a wine enthusiast for sure, but a wine enthusiast with an open mind and a reasonable budget!”
