My events & news



Regular columns:

My long-standing column on wine and drinks for the Telegraph is now in the online edition, going live weekly at It’s your guide to the very best wines and drinks to go out and buy each week, with a firm emphasis on value for money!

My drinks pages in Delicious magazine always carry lots of recommendations and info about the latest best buys and recipe matches each month.

And I write recommendations in the beautiful quarterly publication Food Lifestyle @foodlifestylesw - the insider’s guide to the best food, drink, stays and shops in the South West region. I also freelance for a number of magazines including Decanter.
