Her multi-award-winning books, including the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine and Wine Grapes, are among the most important landmarks in wine literature. Jancis is the Financial Times wine correspondent and writes a bi-monthly column that is published around the world. She also writes daily for www.JancisRobinson.com, which has subscribers in 100 countries and was voted the first-ever Wine Website of the Year in the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards 2010.
