Meet John Trombley
John H. Trombley, Jr., is a lifelong Detroiter and retired pharmacist who was bit by the German wine bug in the late Seventies, when his concept of German wine was totally distorted by the unusual 1976 vintage. He and his wife, nurse Helen Trombley, are the proud possessors of a newly empty nest, having raised five children, all of whom are bookworms like their mother and father.

John is especially fond of European wines, especially those with residual sugar, and is used to jokes about his sweet tooth. His favorite author is Gene Wolfe. He finds that the rather rigorous chemistry and biology curriculum he endured in pharmacy school did have this one practical value--he can understand some of the shop talk thrown about by oenologists. He is a frequent contributor to and reader of the Wine Lovers' Page and its interactive community, The Wine Lovers' Discussion Group.
