About the author (1995)

Jancis Robinson is one of the world's best-loved authorities on wine. One of a handful of wine communicators with an international reputation, Robinson writes daily for www.jancisrobinson.com, weekly for "The Financial Times", and bimonthly for a column that is syndicated on every continent. She has written and presented several award-winning BBC television series, and is the editor of the multi-award-winning "Oxford Companion to Wine". A respected wine judge and lecturer, Robinson was the first person outside the wine trade to pass the fiendish Master of Wine examinations, and did so on her first attempt. The coauthor with Hugh Johnson of "The World Atlas of Wine", Robinson is the author of several definitive books on wine.
