About me

Hello! Thanks for paying my website a visit.

Who am I? An award-winning UK-based journalist, author and broadcaster who specialises in wine, and wine with food.

I’m also the International Wine & Spirit Competition Communicator of the Year 2014 and a wine expert on BBC1 Saturday Kitchen Live.

My debut book, Wine & Food came out in 2014 and I contributed to another book, 30-Second Wine, which was released in 2015. On a more regular writing basis, I’m wine editor for Restaurant magazine, wine expert for Stylist, wine columnist for James Halliday’s Wine Companion (in Australia) as well as Market Life here in the UK, as well as wine reviewer for 60 Second Reviews. I’m also one of four members of The Wine Gang and an ambassador for London Wine Week.

I write for plenty of other magazines besides the regular ones above, including Telegraph Food & Drink, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar and ELLE, all of which can be seen on Article & Columns.

As well as writing frequently about wine I often talk about it too, whether it’s broadcasting for radio or television or hosting wine tastings, which I do frequently around the country. I’m also a judge in international competitions.

Previously I worked full-time on three drinks magazines. During the last of these, at The Drinks Business, I was awarded the Chairman’s Award at the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers’ Awards for “rising rocket-like” through the world of wine writing. Here’s the post-award interview (warning: I might have had a glass of Champagne or two!).

I brought this website to life in 2011 when I went freelance, prior to which I spent three fantastic months working at a winery in McLaren Vale, South Australia, so I hope you enjoy clicking through my site, which I update as often as I can.

And finally, if you want to get in touch about books, articles, presenting or anything else, please drop me a line directly through the contact button below or get in touch with my agent Anne Kibel.
