The American wine writer and wine critic
Eric Asimov (* 1957) attended Wesleyan University (Middletown, Connecticut) and graduated in 1980. He is a nephew of science fiction writer Isaac Asimov (1920-1992). He began in 1984 with the newspaper "New York Times", where he designed the column "$ 25 and Under" in 1992. It describes cheap restaurants where you can get starter, main course and dessert at or below this price. He has been writing about wine since 1999. From 2000 to 2004, he co-authored the annual New York Times Guide to New York City's Guide. Since 2004, he has been the chief wine critic of The New York Times with the two columns "The Pour" (which refers to the "pouring" of the wine) and "Wines of the Times". Regular contributions are published by him in the journals "Food & Wine" and "Sommelier Journal", as well as in the newspaper "International Herald Tribune". There is also a weekly wine broadcast on the radio station WQXR.
