Robinson Jancis

The English journalist Jancis Robinson (*1950) has a degree in mathematics and philosophy from Oxford. She began her career in wine 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 examination.


Of her many books, "Reben, Trauben, Weine" (1987), the gold medal-winning " Oxford Companion to Wine" (1995 - revised editions 2003, 2007), "Weinkurs" (1996), "Rebsorten und ihre Weine" (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), which has been apostrophised as a "wine bible", are worth mentioning. From 1980 to 1986, she succeeded Johnson as wine correspondent of the "Sunday Times".

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
