I’m a London-based wine blogger who also runs a communications consultancy.
I trained as a journalist, working for Sky News, GMTV and BBC radio amongst others, before jumping ship into PR and corporate communications for major global companies.
Starting my own business has given me the flexibility to indulge in my love for wine and how it’s made.
The drinking part is my favourite bit, of course, and finding out what wine matches which food. But I’m also fascinated by the stories behind what I’m tasting – the people, the regions, the winemaking and how the finished product is communicated to consumers.
I firmly believe that wine should be accessible. It is not the preserve of the elitist few who make the masses feel inadequate. It is there to be sipped, savoured, enjoyed and shared.
On the other hand, I think it deserves to be more than a just convenience, hastily popped into a supermarket trolley along with toilet paper and cat food. Of course I buy wine in supermarkets. But you’ll also find me in an independent wine merchant or buying from an online specialist.
Through this website, I want to make people feel equally enthused when they buy and drink wine: to experiment; to feel confident – not daunted – by an extensive restaurant wine list or a large range in a store; to know value when they see it; and above all, to have fun.
PS: I do have a WSET Advanced Certificate under my belt, if you’re interested.
