Alder Yarrow Biography

A Wine Drinking Expert with a Business Problem

Alder Yarrow lives a dual life. By day he is the Founder and Principal of HYDRANT, a customer experience consulting and design firm, helping Fortune 1000 companies strategically change the way they interact with their customers to achieve competitive differentiation in the marketplace. By night, however, Alder becomes the voice and personality behind Vinography.Com, widely acknowledged as the world's leading wine blog. As an award winning-wine writer, Alder brings a fresh perspective to exploring the world of wine and food.

Customer Experience Is The New Frontier

Alder has spent more than 16 years in the internet design and consulting space, his professional career literally following the rise of the Internet as a medium for business. As one of the country's leading information architects / interaction designers, Alder has personally designed many pioneering online experiences, including the first e-commerce site to offer the complete car sales experience online (for Autonation) and the industry's first e-commerce online wedding and gift registry (for Williams Sonoma).

In 2005, he started HYDRANT to help companies think more strategically about their customer experience, and then to actually do something about it. HYDRANT designs multi-channel customer experiences for companies in all industries. Marquee clients include Room & Board, Gymboree, Cisco, Mohawk, and Blurb.

Alder is an accomplished speaker, moderator, and facilitator. He has spoken and moderated panels numerous times at the DMA Multi-channel Merchant conference, and regularly facilitates groups of executives through multi-day strategy sessions.

Life is Too Short to Drink Bad Wine

San Francisco Magazine calls Alder "the wine world's brightest cyberstar." Since 2004, Alder Yarrow has been publishing Vinography.Com, where he writes daily about wines, the wine world, and occasionally about restaurants. Started as a personal project to keep track of Alders notes about food and wine, the award-winning site has grown a large and devoted international readership. Vinography concentrates on sharing the stories, the people, and the passion behind wine from a decidedly down-to-earth perspective.

Alder regularly speaks and presents at wine events around the world including Symposium for Professional Wine Writers at Meadowood in Napa Valley and the Aspen Food and Wine Classic. He has also appeared as a panelist and speaker for events and organizations such as Wine 2.0, The Commonwealth Club, and the Churchill Club. He is currently a member of the editorial board for Sommelier Journal magazine, and the author of the Sonoma and Marin County chapter of the recently released behemoth, Opus Vino a comprehensive look at the world's wine regions and their best wines that weighs in at 7 pounds and 800 pages, and was a finalist for the 2011 James Beard Journalism Awards.

Since November of 2011, Alder has been a columnist for Jancis Robinson on her web site His "Alder on America" column focuses on current events, trends, and happenings in the world of American wine.
