I’m a British wine professional living in Chile, enjoying the delicious flavours of this extraordinary country. I live by the Pacific Ocean, but travel to different wine regions in Chile and elsewhere whenever I can. I translate all sorts of documents for Chilean wineries, Pisco, tea and food producers, the Chilean government and other organizations. I write about wine and food for my own blog and sub-edit for Around the World in 80 Harvests and South America Wine Guide. I now also offer bespoke wine tastings, food and wine pairing events and wine-related classes in English or Spanish at any level from beginner to expert.

I love growing, cooking, tasting and learning about wine and food and have just completed the Wine and Spirit Education Trust Diploma in Wines and Spirits.

I set up this website to share the flavours of Chile with you: I hope you like it.
