About Bob



I am an amateur wine buff living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  With our state-controlled liquor system it is not possible to get good advice in the stores.  I rely mainly on the few posted professional views, but also on tastings, friends’ recommendations and articles I’ve read.  I decided to publish reviews of the wines I’ve tried, together with any professional reviews that I can find, to help others find wines they’d like.  I would love to hear your impressions and recommendations.

My real job is as an ophthalmologist, specializing in cornea, cataract and refractive surgery.  My professional web site is www.drarffa.com.

    Hi Bob,

    It was a pleasure to meet you last night. I’m lucky that after those high octane beers I remembered your website! Renee & I are going to seek out some of these wines you’ve recommended. Thanks!

      Thanks. I enjoyed meeting both of you as well. I didn’t realize how strong those beers were- Iwas surprised how much I felt it after only 3.

    I took your suggestions and visited our upscale State Store yesterday. I bought many of the wines you recommended. Can’t wait to open and try!
    Best Wishes for a happy holiday.
