MARISSA A. ROSS

is a writer, humorist, and leisure enthusiast. She has no qualifications to write about drinking wine, aside from the fact that she has done it every day since 2012. So she's very, very qualified. 

In 2015, Marissa grew out her bangs and went on to win both Editor's Choice and Reader's Choice for "Best Wine Coverage" at the Saveur Blog Awards, and was named one of Wine Enthusiast's 40 Under 40. Formerly a contributing editor for VICE Munchies, Marissa is Man Repeller's "go-to wine expert," was named "Coach of the Month" by Elle magazine, and has been featured as one of the wine world's leading writers in Food & Wine, GQ, and Esquire. Marissa is now the Wine Editor at Bon Appétit and author of the book aptly named, Wine. All The Time.: The Casual Guide To Confident Drinking. (Plume, June 2017)

A Southern California native, Marissa lives in Los Angeles with her two dogs, one cat and one very chill husband, Ben. Outside of day drinking and night drinking, Marissa enjoys sunbathing, mid-century everything, Mexican food and Cherry Coke. She is a "texture person," and is represented by Waxman Leavell and CAA.
