David Mullen is a retired school psychologist and therapist and a lifelong New Jersey resident. Since retiring he has been pursuing two other passions: wine and writing. During this time, David completed two courses at the Wine School of Philadelphia, culminating in his sommelier certification from The National Wine School. Over the years, David and his wife have traveled and sampled wines from many great wineries all over the country. David firmly believes that New Jersey wineries are still underrated and overlooked. In addition, New Jersey wineries now offer fantastic food and great entertainment at special events such as wine-paired dinners, pasta nights, and farm-to-table dinners. David has visited all of New Jersey’s wineries (including a few that are not yet open to the public). He has been blogging about NJ wineries for almost three years (at newjerseyuncorked.com) and his book about New Jersey wineries and wines, entitled New Jersey Uncorked: A Snob-Free Taste of New Jersey Wine was published in August, 2018. When he’s not writing or enjoying a good glass of wine, David can often be found playing guitar or doing research for his writing.
