Tyler Colman’s doctorate may be in political science, but he wrote his dissertation on the politics of wine. He is a wine educator at New York University and the University of Chicago, and he writes a multiple-award-winning blog: Dr. Vino. On the blog, you will find wine recommendations — like a list of great wines for under $10 — in addition to other topics that you might expect from a political scientist. He explores the world in general through the lens of wine. Colman discusses how wine is involved in politics, commerce, and the environment. In fact, he conducted a study on the carbon footprint of American wine, and he revisits the topic on his blog. If you think of wine as simply a drink, think again: Dr. Vino has the prescription for deeper exploration.
