Robinson Jancis

The English journalist Jancis Robinson (*1950) has a degree in mathematics and philosophy from Oxford. She began her professional wine career in 1975 as a contributor to the wine magazine "Wine and Spirits". In 1984, she became the first female journalist to pass the Master of Wine exam. Among her many books are "Vines, Grapes, Wines" (1987), the GAD (Gastronomie Akademie Deutschland) gold medal winning "Oxford Companion to Wine" (Oxford Wine lexicon, 1995 - revised editions 2003, 2007), "Wine Course" (1996), "Grape Varieties and their Wines" (1996) and "The World Atlas of Wine" (2001 - with Hugh Johnson), as well as the work "Wine Grapes" (2012 - with Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz), apostrophised as a "wine bible", are worth mentioning. From 1980 to 1986, she was the wine correspondent of the "Sunday Times" as Johnson's successor. In 1984 she won the coveted "Glenfiddich Trophy" for the first time and in 1986 she was awarded "Wine Writer of the Year" and "Food Writer of the Year".

In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".
