Gabe Sasso is a freelance writer. He’s spent many of his vacations the last 2 decades traveling to wine regions. His curiosity about wine started, due in no small part, from being surrounded by a large Italian family. Most of his Uncles, his Father and his Grandfathers were all home wine makers. With that and many childhood trips to Italy as his Baptism into wine, his interest flourished as time passed. What was always a personal passion, bubbled to the surface as a vocation in 2007 when he founded this site. In addition to Gabe’s View, he has been the sole wine columnist for Bullz-Eye.com since January of 2009, writes a weekly Wine & Spirits column for The Daily Meal , and does a variety of Freelance work for other portals. In 2009 he founded Drink Dry Creek, dedicated to that appellation in California. Gabe also provides ghost writing and consulting services to wineries, wine regions, restaurants and the like. When time allows he hosts private tasting events.
