Dr. Smoller has had a passion for wine since his days living near Napa Valley. He has been seriously studying wine for the last 9 years and is currently working on WSET Level 4 (Diploma level). Along the way, he has completed the Italian Wine Scholar and French Wine Scholar programs (Wine Scholar Guild), the Spanish Wine Expert course, as well as master-level courses in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Alsace, Loire Valley, Rhone Valley, and Champagne — all with honors.
His wine studies are not limited to Europe, however, and he has also successfully completed courses about wines in California and Oregon, Argentina, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. He has been formally certified as an instructor for the WSET, as well as for the Wine Scholar Guild. He teaches several wine courses at Daemen University. In his spare time, he is a Professor at the University Rochester of School of Medicine and Dentistry.
