John Robinson

John Robinson, a Vanderbilt University honors graduate, ex-McKinsey consultant and former President of a Fortune 50 company, decided to leave the corporate world to pursue fatherhood, filmmaking and foodie interests. In “retirement” he formed a production company that has produced world-­class lifestyle programs for television and the
Web. With his Master Sommelier wife Andrea Robinson, John has co­created a game­-changing line of stemware called The ONE™, as well as two amazing kids­­ — daughter Jesse, and son Jack. Together, Andrea and John cook for the family every day, and of course taste and pair wine, too. Says Andrea: “John won my heart in the kitchen with his spatula skills and his confidence—it takes guts to blind­-taste on your first date with a Master Somm, but he did, and nailed the wine! He is one of the best blind wine tasters I have ever met. (Even if he
weren’t he’d still be a keeper!)”
