Jim Arnold is perhaps the incarnation of the modern Renaissance man. He combines
a good-humored enthusiasm for wine with a lifetime of experience in areas
ranging from lumber to computer technology to philosophy. His own experience as
first a novice and then a frequent visitor to wine clubs brought about
Wine Clubs of Sonoma County, a collaboration with Ingrid Larnis and an
informative resource on membership for wine lovers of all varieties.
Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1951, Arnold served in the U.S. Marine Corps during
Vietnam. Inspired to go back to college, he was awarded a merit-based
scholarship to the University of California at Santa Cruz and graduated with a
degree in modern society and social thought. Regrettably unable to land a
career as a Social Thoughtist, Arnold explored other options, working as a
lumberjack, boilermaker, computer programmer, and technical writer. He hasÂ
published numerous technical articles and manuals, marketing articles, short
pieces in magazines and newspapers, a play, two poems, and a short story.
Arnold has three children and lives in Sonoma County, California, where he is a
member of the Camp Meeker Volunteer Fire Department and has made a diligent
study of the abundant wine culture.
