Fresh, funny and down-to-earth, Peter Rockwell is the everyman’s wine
writer. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia he’s worked in the liquor industry for
over 30 years and has written about wine, spirits & beer since graduating
from the School of Journalism at the University of King’s College in 1986.
His reviews and feature articles have been published in Tidings, Vines,
Occasions, Where and on Alliant.net to name a few; he has been a weekly
on-air wine feature columnist for both CBC-TV and Global Television and his
wine column ‘Liquid Assets’ appeared weekly in two of Nova Scotia’s daily
newspapers, ‘The Halifax Daily News’ and ‘The Cape Breton Post.’
Today Peter’s irreverent answer man column ‘Bon Vivant’ appears each month
in Tidings Magazine and his weekly ‘Liquid Assets’ column is published
across Canada in editions of the METRO newspaper.
When not drinking at home, and at work, Peter travels the globe looking for
something to fill his glass and put into words.
