Bio: When Lenn Thompson isn’t working as the Internet content manager for a large software company, he can be found sipping his way through the many wine regions of New York State. A Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native, Lenn moved to Long Island six years ago and fell in love with the region¹s still-growing and under-appreciated wine industry.

Bringing his two true passions ­ writing and wine ­ together in his spare time, Lenn writes a weekly wine column for Dan¹s Papers in the Hamptons, is a regular contributor to the Long Island Press and serves as editor for LENNDEVOURS ( a New York-focused wine (and food) blog he founded in 2004.

An admitted wine geek, Lenn has a low tolerance for wine snobs who suck the fun out of wine. His motto is “Drink what you like. Don’t listen to critics.”
