Vicar of Editorial (yes, that's his real title) Greg Horton is a freelance writer and adjunct professor. He has been writing for more than 25 years, and during the last 10 of those, he's written hundreds of articles about food and wine. He loves wine. He loves wine and bars so much that he lives with a bartender in a downscale apartment in downtown Oklahoma City, as befits a writer. He made up the title. We had to look up the word "vicar." Apparently, it's on his mug at McNellie's, too. We're guessing they don't know what it means either. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
