San Francisco Examiner Wine Columnist, Pamela Busch, has been on the cutting edge of the wine industry during her 23 year career. A wine writer, educator, consultant and she founded Hayes & Vine, a trend setting wine bar in the Bay Area in 1994, and CAV Wine Bar & Kitchen, the first 'wine restaurant' in San Francisco. Her take on good wine is much like Justice Potter Stewart's statement on pornography, "I know it when I see it." Respecting people's different preferences, she is open to trying all wines using balance and quality as the most important criteria. Born and raised in New York, she has been living in San Francisco since 1992 and continues to have a divided loyalty between the Mets and the Giants.
