Welcome to CorkEnvy!
Stub is an award-winning blogger (2015 Wine Blog Awards), award-winning filmmaker (2016 International Wine Film Awards), regular contributor to the Emmy Award-winning Daytime Blue Ridge (WSLS Roanoke, VA), author of the monthly wine and beverage column in City Lifestyles Magazine, co-host of the weekly talk show Wine Antics LIVE, co-host of the One Bourbon, One Chard, or One Beer Podcast, and has been featured in the San Jose Mercury News and the Wall Street Journal.
Stub has diverse experience in the hospitality industry—from bartending to restaurant management to foodservice/hospitality training and consulting. His passion for wine led him to take a position as a harvest intern in 2013, not only to appease his desire to “get his hands dirty” in the industry, but also to obtain an inside perspective that would better inform his media work.
Since its founding in 2011, CorkEnvy.com has been the vehicle through which Stub has put his knowledge—as well as his writing, music, public speaking, and entertaining skills—to work for the wine world; industry colleagues have referred to him as both the “Weird Al” and “Jimmy Kimmel” of wine.
Stub is a former active duty United States Marine and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Government and International Politics and a Master of Public Policy—the former being his most proud accomplishment, the two latter resulting in the most expensive pieces of wall art in his home office.
As a sought-after writer, promotional filmmaker, speaker, and on-air personality, Stub works tirelessly to improve his knowledge (and his palate), and to make wine fun, unpretentious, and accessible. He firmly believes you can be serious about wine without taking yourself too seriously.
