Jancis Robinson

Wine Writer, Financial Times and JancisRobinson.com

One of a handful of wine communicators with an international reputation, Jancis Robinson writes daily for JancisRobinson.com, weekly for The Financial Times, and bi-monthly for a column that is syndicated around the world.

She has written many award-winning books, is editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine and co-author with Hugh Johnson of The World Atlas of Wine, each of these books recognised as a standard reference worldwide.

In 1984 she was the first person outside the wine trade to pass the rigorous Master of Wine exams and in 2003 she was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen, on whose cellar she now advises. Her online BBC Maestro wine course was launched in February 2022.

She loves and lives for wine in all its glorious diversity, generally favouring balance and subtlety over sheer mass.
