About the Author

Eric Miller is the owner and winemaker at Chaddsford Winery in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. A lifelong oenophile, Miller learned his craft in France’s prestigious Burgundy region and apprenticed at his family’s Hudson Valley winery before hand-selecting his own terroir in southeastern Pennsylvania, where he founded Chaddsford Winery in 1982. His wines have been called “enchanting” and “perfect” by Gourmet, and have been featured in Food & Wine, The New York Times, and Philadelphia magazine. Eric has also been a leader in the development of premium viticulture in his home region, both as a board member of the Pennsylvania Commodities Council and past president and long time board member of the Pennsylvania Association of Winegrowers.
