About Us

Anne and Mike met in 1993.  They had both been interested in wine before then, but as their passion for each other grew, so did their passion for good wine and good food.  They’ve been married since 1995 and live in Southern California with Clyde, their dog, Mrs. Dorothy Parker, their cat, and a random number of chickens.

Anne Louise Bannon is an established journalist, whose work has been seen in a wide variety of venues, including Wines & Vines, WineMaker, CommonSenseMedia.org, Cooking Smart, Homeland Protection Professional, PC Magazine and in newspapers across the country.  She is also the writer and editor of the YourFamilyViewer blog as well as fiction blog WhiteHouseRhapsody.
