Charity Auctioneer Tom DiNardo Joins Wine Adventure Magazines Contributing Editors and Writers Staff

Wine auctioneer Tom DiNardo of DiNardo & Lord Auctioneers joins the editorial and writing staff for the inaugural May/June news stand issue of Wine Adventure Magazine.

Wine Adventure Magazine is the first wine magazine for women. The magazine is published bi-monthly and merges the topics of food, travel, and culture together through the catalyst of wine. “Wine Adventure isn’t written by wine snobs who assume you have a sizable collection and a wine IQ to match – our staff and contributors are people like you, who believe that wine and food shouldn’t be taken too seriously,” claims one of the magazine’s anonymous staff.

“In January of this year I was contacted by Wine Adventure for a story they were writing about wine auctions. Initially they were seeking only a quote from a wine auctioneer after finding my company, DiNardo & Lord Auctioneers, on the internet. During the interview I disclosed that in addition to being a charity auctioneer, I was a freelance writer for Wine Enthusiast magazine and a regular contributor to, and Next thing you know, I was asked by the magazine’s editor to review their upcoming auction story for accuracy. Before you know it, I’m onboard as an editor and contributing writer with two of my articles appearing in this May/June issue of Wine Adventure,” states DiNardo. Is writing a major portion of your career? “Absolutely not! I’m a successful charity auctioneer first, a consulting sommelier and wine educator next, with a sprinkling of additional services I make available to my clients in the areas of certified appraisal work and freelance writing. Diversification has made me and my company very successful, and routine bores me,” says DiNardo with his trademark smile.
