Jancis Robinson! What a thrill to meet the world’s greatest wine writer…

jancis-robinson-bookHow could we not share this photo of Paolo with Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine, editor of the Oxford Companion to Wine, co-editor of Wine Grapes, wine critic for the Financial Times, sommelier to the royal family…!!!???

Paolo met her last week while he was attending the Boulder Burgundy Festival in Colorado, where Jancis was the keynote speaker.

Not only is she considered the greatest wine writer in the world today, but she is always one of the nicest people we’ve ever met in the wine trade. She was so generous with her time and graciously let us snap this photo of her with Paolo.

She, winemaker Étienne de Montaille, and festival founder Brett Zimmerman MS led a wonderful seminar and guided tasting of Domaine de Montille wines. The sold-out crowd, which included a number of master sommeliers, seemed to hang on every word.

Following her appearance at the festival, Jancis headed to New York to promote her new book, 24-Hour Wine Expert (Abrams 2016), which is now available on Amazon (among other online bookshops).
