There are so many wines from different regions around the world that it can be difficult to pick the right wine for the right occasion or for your collection. An expensive wine bottle does not necessarily mean it is the best wine for your collection; you have to consider various other factors before buying. John Jackson is a wine collector on social media platforms who recommends the best bottles to taste and/or to buy to add to a wine collection.
In addition to being a practicing intellectual property and data privacy attorney for a large law firm, John Jackson is a well-known creator on various social media platforms. John recently found that social media helps him to pursue his passion for wine and also serves as a creative outlet. As an attorney, John attends many dinners where it was common to enjoy wine with a meal. It thus became important for John to know which wines to order at dinner and also to pick wines that were within the correct budget for a particular event. This is where John’s journey as a wine enthusiast began.
John’s love for wine began back in 2007 after he tasted a bottle of Opus One for the first time. After that, John began tasting wine more frequently. Within six months after tasting the Opus One, John planned his first trip to Napa, where he spent several days visiting wineries, tasting wine and enjoying dinners paired perfectly with various wines. John is also friends with a number of like-minded wine collectors in the Dallas-Fort Worth area who frequently conduct wine tastings and wine dinners at Roots & Water Wine Room. To become a better blind taster and enrich his wine expertise, John also pursued formal wine study through the Wine Spirit & Education Trust (WSET). After several years of studying, John has now obtained four certifications from the WSET, including the prestigious level four diploma (DipWSET) – a rigorous 6-unit course that takes at least two years to complete and which is notorious for its high failure rate.
John realized that his wine knowledge and experience could be valuable to others as well. He thus opened a social media account on Instagram (@AttorneySomm) and a YouTube channel (Attorney Somm) to educate people about wine. Even though John started on Instagram only 3 years ago and has only been on YouTube for a little more than a year, he has quickly become an expert social media strategist. He creates engaging and realistic content that can be of help to new wine lovers and collectors.
John’s wine recommendations have always been appreciated by his followers. He makes sure to give authentic reviews about different wine bottle brands for drinking, and also for wine collecting. John has also interacted with many wine producers to learn and share interesting information with his followers. As a wine influencer, John puts a lot of effort into collaborating with the right people and making the best content that can be of help to people. He has been making a number of entertaining and informative videos on YouTube with Dr. Tiffany Moon, from season 5 of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Dallas. For example, Dr. Moon and Attorney Somm recently published an insightful and entertaining review of Sara Jessica Parker’s Invivo X Sauvignon Blanc.
In addition, John’s top red wines of 2021 video on YouTube has gotten a lot of attention from a global audience. From choosing the best quality wine to the most economical wine bottles, John is a go-to source for top wine content and wine recommendations.
