I’m a British journalist and sommelier based in Argentina since 2006. Fluent in Spanish and a permanent resident in Buenos Aires I specialise in the southern half of Latin America that includes Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Uruguay and Brazil: culture, food and wine, luxury travel and lifestyle, with special love for Argentina.
I qualified as a sommelier in December 2014, passed the Court of Master Sommeliers level one introductory certificate in March 2015 and passed WSET 3 in October 2015.
I’ve contributed to an array of publications, websites and guide books including Condé Nast Traveler (US), Wallpaper*, Saveur, Departures, Fortune, The Guardian, The Independent, Centurion, CNN Travel, Fodor’s, Forbes Argentina, Condé Nast Traveller (UK), Buenos Aires Herald, Time Out, DK Eyewitness, Rough Guide, The Financialist and Screen International. I also contribute to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants blog, have worked as a fixer for CNN International and am the Mendoza expert for Foodie Hub.
Obviously I like wine. A lot. And eating. That too. And travelling…
