I loved this book, it is so charmingly written, so entertaining, lively, educational. I've enjoyed her columns and met her once many years ago at a wine tasting (where else ?). This book is a wonderful reflection on a life some of us may envy. It was written over 10 years ago and the wine world has continued to evolve, but reading this still feels fresh. For anyone who enjoys wine I'd recommend this book.

Robinson is a good writer, better than I expected, and this is lots of fun. Love the strange UK wine terminology.
