Biography
Tim Hanni MW
www.timhanni.com

Tim Hanni is one of the first two Americans to earn the title Master of Wine in 1990 and currently a member of the Executive Council of the Institute of Masters of Wine in London and the Board of Directors of the Institute of Masters of Wine North America. He is on faculty at Sonoma State University’s Wine Business Institute teaching the Wine Business Certificate Series, the first international online wine business program. Hanni is a widely recognized leader in developing wine marketing and education programs that break down barriers that historically hinder the unfettered enjoyment of wine. He is involved in sensory and behavioral research projects to create a better understanding of consumer wine preferences.

He has joined forces with Dr. Virginia Utermohlen, M.D. to form Taste Science, a new research and consultancy venture with aims of expanding wine consumption by fostering better communications, eliminating counter-productive wine and consumer myths and creating a more cohesive global wine industry. His international consulting work centers around how to implement his consumer research technology and insights into strategic planning, product development, marketing and sales initiatives that have resulted in tremendous success stories for his clients.

Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as “The Wine Anti-Snob,” Tim is an innovator, researcher, renegade and a relentless crusader against wine snobbery. At the heart of this crusade is a quest to find the fundamental elements that shape our taste preferences, and to understand, embrace, and cultivate the interest of all wine consumers, not just a select few. Tim’s extensive research provides an invaluable reference for winery product development consulting that has resulted in growing one national brand from 100k to over 3mm cases in a seven year period.

Tim’s innovations influenced the wine and restaurant business during his tenure as a Director for Beringer Wine Estates in the 1990s, where he originated the now-familiar concept of the Progressive Wine List, now used by restaurant and hotels worldwide. The Progressive List organizes wines relative to intensity of flavor rather than geographic origin, empowering staff and customers to select wines according to taste preferences.

Many of the world’s greatest chefs have embraced Tim’s Flavor Balancing concepts and techniques. His techniques for creating user-friendly wine lists and retail wine programs are combined with proven culinary techniques to balance food and wine flavors and are employed by thousands of restaurants and hotel outlets around the world. The Wine & Spirits Education Trust in London, England, has adopted his wine and food principles in their international curriculum.

Tim’s research on understanding the physiological and psychological factors that determine consumer beverage preferences and buying behavior, engineered in cooperation with noted Cornell University researcher Dr. Virginia Utermohlen, MD, is setting the stage for the next revolution in wine and food education, and provides the basis for Tim’s New Wine Fundamentals seminars and his industry consulting.

He currently lives in the Napa Valley with his wife, Kate, his business partner and a leader in the airline rights movement, and their son.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
