About the Author

Born in 1956 (unfortunately a poor vintage in Europe), Harry Karis''s first encounter with wine occurred when he played guitar in a rock and roll band in the mid 70s, enjoying ''more or less'' good wine at a young age. In the early 80s, he opened a restaurant with his wife Josi and became increasingly fascinated by the world of fine wine. This was the beginning of a long and infinitely pleasurable journey. A late-bloomer, Harry finished medical school at the age of 40. Thanks to a certain degree of prosperity, he began drinking more exclusive and rare wines, expanding his minded and appreciating wines from all over the world, Bordeaux was his first love. Mainly self-educated, with an inquisitive nature and a drive to learn, Harry studied almost every possible wine-related subject. At the end of the 1990s, Harry became more focused on quality Southern Rhone wines, especially Châteauneuf-du-Pape. He greatly appreciated these wines with different personalities and styles, but all sharing a lush, exciting and very exuberant quality. This led to a completely different, more hedonistic approach to wine drinking rather than a merely analytical one. Harry''s instinctive eagerness motivated him to delve deeper into all aspects of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
