About Jancis Robinson
“The most respected wine critic and journalist in the world” – Decanter magazine
Jancis Robinson has been writing about wine since 1975. She now writes weekly for the Financial Times and daily for JancisRobinson.com and is responsible for many of the standard reference books on wine, including The Oxford Companion to Wine and, with Hugh Johnson, The World Atlas of Wine. In 1984 she was the rst person outside the wine trade to pass the rigorous Master of Wine exams and in 2003 was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen, on whose cellar she now advises.
Jancis loves and lives for wine in all its glorious diversity, generally favouring balance and subtlety over sheer mass. Her desire to demystify the world of wine is the driving force behind the award-winning website, and a catalyst for the Jancis Robinson collection in collaboration with Richard Brendon.
