The joy of learning about wine
Janine traces her passion for wine back to her first holidays in France as a young teenager. Throughout an esteemed career in public and corporate life she has taken every opportunity to develop her wine knowledge further through achieving qualifications and visits across the winelands of Europe, California, Argentina, Chile, South Africa and more recently the emerging vineyards of South East Asia. Today, as an Associate of the Institute of Wines and Spirits and a Certified Wine Educator she shares her knowledge and experiences with others, both in the UK and France, through tutored wine tastings, vineyard visits and, together with husband Alistair, the unique ‘food and wine experience’.
