About the Author
Cofounder and Editor in Chief, Italian Wine Central
Jack is a former naval flight officer and intelligence officer. During his career in the Navy and as an intelligence and security analyst, his responsibilities often involved training and instructional systems design. His duty tours in such locations as New Zealand, Spain, and South America also allowed him an early exposure to wine while he was serving. After transitioning from government service, Jack became a book editor with more than 300 titles in his repertoire, editing everything from travel books to medical texts. His personal interest in wine led to much crossover between his editing and wine education. Among other things, Jack wrote the seminal 2009 edition of the Society of Wine Educators’ Certified Specialist of Wine Study Guide and introduced the SWE Workbook. He also coedited the Greenwood Press book The Business of Wine: An Encyclopedia. He holds the Level III Award in Wines and Spirits with distinction from the WSET. Focusing increasingly on Italian wine, Jack decided to combine his computer science degree, training background, and analysis expertise to create Italian Wine Central in a culmination of a lifetime of interests.
Cofounder and Education Director, Italian Wine Central
A 25-year veteran of the wine industry, Geralyn has held positions in multiple channels, from wineries to retail operations. Building on a lifelong love of education, she became a member and later executive director of the Society of Wine Educators. Just prior to starting Italian Wine Central, Geralyn was vice president of education for the importer-distributor Winebow, where her deep interest in Italian wines was forged. When not focusing on things Italian, she lectures on wine business topics in the Wine MBA program at Sonoma State University and teaches at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Her professional wine credentials include the Certified Wine Educator from SWE and the Level III Award in Wines and Spirits with distinction from the WSET. A dual citizen of the United States and the Italian Republic, Geralyn holds a BS in Management and an MBA in Marketing. The development of the Italian Wine Professional program represents the synergy between two of her passions: helping others learn, and the allure of Italy—its language, culture, food, wine, and people.
