Here you can find all my articles published in the Financial Times every Saturday, the bi-monthly articles I syndicate to every continent, together with all the other news and views I think deserve to be read by as many wine lovers as possible.

It's probably safe to say that all of those responsible for JancisRobinson.com and most of those who visit it are keen on independent wine retailers. Life is not easy for them. They may be powered by massive enthusiasm for our favourite fermented fruit juice but they are arraigned. More...
24 July 2014 Many, many congratulations to Julia and Richard for being shortlisted for this year's Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards to be announced in September. Julia is shortlisted as Online Wine Communicator of the Year for her contributions to this site and Richard as. More...
Newton Vineyard is not currently one of Napa Valley's most talked-about wineries. Long gone are the days in the early 1980s when high-profile winemaker Ric Forman was lured from Sterling, then riding the crest of a Coke-financed wave (upper case C), to Newton, where he was succeeded by John.

10 July 2014 - Seven years on and my, how quickly the South African wine scene has changed. Compare and contrast the 2007 progress report below with my tasting article yesterday on South Africa's exciting new wave and the 2014 overview to be published this Saturday. Our Throwback Thursday. More...
Our regular columnist in Australia Max Allen asked in Australia at the crossroads?  which way the wine industry would go. High-profile Barossa Valley producer Torbreck is surely taking the high road with their announcement that they have bought the famous Gnadenfrei vineyard (pictured) in. More...
