AOC Vin de Savoie is 40 years old. I pose some difficult questions.

No problem with the quality, but the quantity of grapes harvested in Jura  in 2013 was pitifully low. More details on this new post.

For the UK wine trade and press, here are details of the 27 producers who will be at the first ever Jura trade tasting in London. I've also given a personal tip of which wine to taste from each if you are short of time.

Freelance Wine and Travel Writer, Editor and Educator
Introduction
I've worked in wine for ever, first in the trade, then running courses, working in editorial offices on wine books, writing articles and contributing to books.

What I do these days:
  • I am a freelance wine writer, editor and educator, dividing my time between London, UK and Haute Savoie, France.
  • My little speciality areas in wine are Jura and Savoie, but I know most of the world of wine pretty well.
  • I've also recently done some travel writing and editng about my speciality areas of Jura and the French Alps. Might like to do some more!
  • My very own baby is Wine Travel Guides, the website launched in 2007, with on-line travel guides to wine regions in Europe, and always on the look-out for ideas to really make this project fly.
You might want to read my LinkedIn profile or take a look at my personal website/blog.

Bragging rights
I won the the Wine Tourism category in the first Born Digital Wine Awards. Jancis Robinson wrote in Aug 2011 "Just wanted to thank you, Wink, for all the invaluable help you have given with our forthcoming massive book about grape varieties (Sept 2012). We are very lucky to have you as an informant - and I hope Jura and Savoie truly appreciate all you do for them too!"
