The ’80s was an important decade for wine in the U.S. It was also an important time for Wine Enthusiast Companies: The magazine was launched in 1988.
To mark the publication’s 35th anniversary, not only did the print team create an amazing ’80s-themed May issue, which is out now, Managing Print Editor John Capone sat down with chairman CEO Adam Strum to discuss the transformative decade.
Wanting to educate consumers about wine, Adam, along with wife Sybil Strum launched Wine Enthusiast Magazine in the 1908s. Listen as Strum chronicles how he and Sybil ventured into the media space, how a large soda company impacted U.S. wine in the 80s and the interesting way U.S. wine drinkers learned about wine varietals.
