Paul Zitarelli, Seattle magazine’s wine writer since 2013, writes about a lot of wines: hundreds each year as editor-in-chief of award-winning Full Pull Wines, the Seattle-based storytelling retailer he founded in 2009, and dozens more in his role for the Magazine. In 2015, he earned the diploma qualification from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, putting him well along the path toward becoming a Master of Wine. His other diploma—Applied Mathematics from Harvard—he uses less frequently. Paul lives on Bainbridge Island, Washington, with his wife, two young children, and one skittish cat. His first book will be released in September 2018.
