Meet The Wine Professor, Stuart Ake
Mr. Ake delivers wine education experiences for the collector of trophy bottles and the wine-curious novice. Prior to his career in winemaking, he dedicated himself to educational reform projects and enjoyed being a leader in the field.

In addition to appearing on The Today Show, his activities & materials have received critical praise in Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, Forbes, Men’s Journal, Time and Chicago Tribune.
Stu studied Philosophy and Education at New School for Social Research and attended graduate school in Educational Psychology at the University of California at Berkeley. He collects soul records, enjoys mustard and roots for the Chicago Cubs.
