Wine, cider, beer and beyond
James oversees the content and direction of two magazines that together cater to an audience of 68,000 readers throughout North America. Sip Northwest spotlights the booming wine, beer, spirit and cider scene in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia, and the food and travel excursions that revolve around it. Cidercraft, a national magazine, hones in on the growing North American cider industry. It offers insight on the latest bottles and producers to seek out and the trends that drive the category forward. James also authored the book Tasting Cider (Storey Publishing, August 2017).
