Where to find us
The places we go, the events we host, where we are to be read, seen and heard.
2020 (very tentatively...)
Toronto 24 June - George Brown College Wine Symposium
Oslo 2 September - Glassware and World Atlas of Wine event organised by Symposium Wines
London 11 October - Syrahs of the World tasting
London 1 November - Celebration of JancisRobinson.com's 20th anniversary
The Financial Times in the FT Weekend every Saturday (the magazine in the UK edition, Life & Arts elsewhere)
The Wine Show
The Wine Show (second series) aired via hulu.com in the US in late 2017, on Channel 5 at 7pm for seven Fridays from 12 January 2018 in the UK
Charlie Rose Show
30-minute conversation with the veteran American TV host aired on Thursday 14 Dec 2006. At the time of writing, this is no longer available online but you can apparently buy a DVD of the show from Amazon.
Jancis Robinson's Wine Course
The multi-award-winning 10-part TV series shot around the world of wine with some of its most famous characters is shown regularly on BBC World and on various PBS stations in the US. For more details of how to obtain the DVD, click here.
Uncorked with Jancis Robinson
Six 30-minute programmes shot around Italy in 2002.
Two series of 10-minute profiles of wine trade luminaries such as Michael Broadbent for BBC2. The second, 1999, series was much garlanded.
The Wine Programme
Three series (six, seven and six 30-minute programmes) for Channel 4 originally shown in 1983, 1985 and 1987 but, amazingly, shown at least in part in Australia in 2005!
Apostrophes with Bernard Pivot
Ancient – 1988 – edition of this iconic French arts TV programme with Émile Peynaud, Michel Dovaz and others. Very odd hairdo and bad French on my part.

In November 2016 the Guild of Sommeliers published this 45-minute podcast, an interview that covers the story of my professional life and a few of my opinions.
You may also catch my voice if you enjoy documentaries, particularly historical biographies, although narrated documentaries are now a dying breed, as are narrators with accents as relatively posh as mine. One week in April 2002 I recorded commentaries, for three different UK TV channels, on three men in a closet: comedian Frankie Howerd, erstwhile leader of the Liberal party Jeremy Thorpe and ice skater John Curry. Subjects of films I have narrated include Florence Nightingale, Hitler's Women, Olga Korbut, Billie Jean King, Lee Strasberg and the Royal Opera House (the original fly-on-the-wall series The House).
The BBC's Food Programme devoted a whole programme to me in May 2013.
Here is an interview with me on Grape Radio, recorded in California in September 2007, followed by another in 2010, and here is an interview with Lynne Rossetto Kasper on NPR's The Splendid Table broadcast on 2 January 2010, although recorded long before. More recent is the series of interviews conducted in late 2012 and early 2013 in the US.
